We are delighted to announce a new capability that allows you to conduct offline, in-position conversion of datafiles for use with Transparent Details Encryption (TDE). This Fast Offline Conversion element is now out there for use with Oracle E-Organization Suite 12.1.3 and 12.2.2 and afterwards 12.2.x databases.
What does this element do?
The encryption is transparent to the software, so code does not have to be rewritten and present SQL statements will function unchanged. Any authorized databases session can read through the encrypted info: the encryption only applies to the databases datafiles and backups.
This new course of action is now the advised procedure for changing to TDE with minimum downtime and lowest complexity. It supersedes prior solutions for changing to TDE.
