This paper provides best practices for using Oracle Advanced Security Transparent Data Encryption (TDE). Oracle Advanced Security TDE provides the ability to encrypt sensitive application data on storage media completely transparent to the application itself. TDE addresses encryption requirements associated with public and private privacy and security mandates such as PCI and California SB1386. Oracle Advanced Security TDE column encryption was introduced in Oracle Database 10g Release 2, enabling encryption of application table columns, containing credit card or social security numbers.
