Using a Secure External Password Store with the JDBC Thin Driver (Doc ID 1441745.1)

Last updated on MAY 22, 2017

Applies to:

JDBC - Version 11.2.0.3.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Credentials for connecting to databases can be stored in a client-side Oracle wallet and allow the client to connect without need to supply a username and password.
The wallet is accessed in a secure way and the credentials are looked up based on the JDBC connection string.
This note provides a complete demonstration on how to set up the wallet and as the JDBC/thin program that uses the wallet.


This demonstration does not use SSL and does not depend on a server wallet.  The goal is simply to have a client-side wallet to store the credentials and perform a simple JDBC connection using TCP
