Network Encryption in Standard Edition


This topic is doubtfully something to write about, and I was very pleased to find this blog post about

Native Network Encryption and SSL/TLS are not part of the Advanced Security Option

As you  already might have noticed, I look into things from a Standard Edition Database point of view, and to me Tim Hall’s post was executed in a more “Standard Edition Mind Thinking” fashion, and that is for me so amazing to notice, since there are not too many blogs out there at the moment, which are blending the “Standard Edition Database challenges” flavour into their post.

Please check his blog, but the main thing for SE is:

“Network encryption (native network encryption and SSL/TLS) and strong authentication services (Kerberos, PKI, and RADIUS) are no longer part of Oracle Advanced Security and are available in all licensed editions of all supported releases of the Oracle database.”

GDRP – Standard Edition Database – any options out-of-the-box?

Oracle released this document in January 2017:

“Accelerate Your Response to the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – Using Oracle Database Security Products”

When you have an Enterprise Edition Database, and money are no issue, it looks like a pretty straight solution.

The “Oracle Maximum Data Security architecture” gives a nice overlook about what is available for EE:Oracle Corp.(c) + my added SE notes

Take care, stay well, and enjoy the weekend!
