In Oracle 11g release 2, Oracle introduced a new product Oracle Real Application Clusters One Node (Oracle RAC One Node)

This product is an Oracle RAC' s instance but executed in one single node. May be run on different physical servers, not only one (this is common) but a database instance is running only on the same node  simultaneously  (* but we'll see later that this is not completely true).

 

Encrypted Tablespaces in Oracle 11g

Up
0

Since the release 1 of Oracle 11g, Oracle provides the ability to encrypt tablespaces in full, to protect sensitive data inside and accessible from the OS. That is, the objective of this new functionality is not to protect sensitive data of users of the database, but to protect the information of the tablespace datafiles.

 

To explain the usefulness of this feature, it is best to explain situations in which our data without this functionality would be vulnerable. For example, in the case file of a physical backup of a database tablespace were to wrong hands, could see some data "clear" without problems. For example, a single edition of tablespace (or a simple "cat") containing the Employees table, we show clear varchar2 fields can extract sensitive data (you do not believe, try it!).
