We are excited to announce the general availability of Delphix version 6.0.11 and other continuously delivered releases during October and November 2021.
Delphix continues to invest in supporting the latest Oracle features to support our key customers. In this release we have expanded support for:
Exadata & Exadata Cloud at Customer Migrations - This release now supports Exadata & Exadata Cloud at Customer 12.2 on OEL 7.8 and OEL 7.9 to support organizations migrating their databases to Oracle's managed database solution.
Oracle 21c - This release is now certified to work with Oracle's latest platform version 21c for Virtualization and Masking.
Delphix continually strives to improve security across our platform. In this release we have added support for:
OAuth 2.0 - For enterprises looking to eliminate the use of usernames and passwords, we have expanded our OAuth 2.0 support to allow token authentication for our Virtualization Engine & Masking Engine APIs. This extends our ability to empower Delphix customers to go passwordless for API session Authentication. So customers now have OAuth2 support for engine APIs or they can leverage DCT-generated API keys as API authentication options.
Oracle MT TDE Expanded Support - To support customers who deploy stringent security controls, we have expanded support for Oracle Multitenant Transparent Data Encryption (TDE) for data-at-rest. Teams can now use unique keys between production and non-production environment replicas.
Oracle TDE Re-Key for Non-Prod Virtual Databases: Unique TDE keys for Production & Non-Production instances
Python SDKs for DCT - We've released software development kits for DCT Multicloud in addition to our existing documentation and interactive APIs. We've provided code examples to enable practitioners to quickly get started with Delphix data automation.
DBID Modification - For single-tenant Oracle VDBs, teams can now change the DBID post-provisioning during VDB refreshes. Previously the DBID was locked on initial deployment.
Updated UX - The color, graphics and icons of the masking web interface has been updated to better match Virtualization & Data Control Tower interfaces.
Connector Enhancement for Oracle - As part of our migration effort for connectors to our new high performance Masking Connector SDK, we have updated the Masking Connector for Oracle in this release. This improves functionality and reduces the need for advanced connectors. Customers will be automatically migrated to the new connector.
Secure Lookup V2 - The updated secure lookup is enhanced to include a legacy hashing method and add an API for downloading the lookup values. This enables teams to re-create their previous secure lookup algorithms in the new framework while maintaining consistent results with improved performance and forward compatibility.
Web UI Editing of Extended Algorithms - We improved the user experience for creating and editing new extended algorithms. Algorithms can now include configuration information in JSON format and be edited in the UI.
Oracle 10g EOL - Support will be end-of-life as of the 188.8.131.52 release. This follows our standard 12-month pre-announcement. 184.108.40.206 will be the last release that will support Oracle 10.1 and 10.2.
Oracle 11.1/12.1 Deprecation - We are announcing the deprecation process of Oracle 11.1 and 12.1 with the 220.127.116.11 release. With this deprecation, we expect to end-of-life support for these database versions a year from now. Oracle 11.1 ended Premier Support in August 2012 and Extended Support in August 2015. Details of Oracle database end of life can be found here.
TLS 1.0/1.1 Deprecation - Transport Layer Security (TLS) version 1.0/1.1 will be deprecated across all products on the next (18.104.22.168) release. These versions of the protocol have known vulnerabilities and use is heavily discouraged.
