The purpose of this document is to describe the behavior of Transparent Data Encryption in an Oracle Cloud environment.
Oracle Database Cloud Services, including Exadata Cloud Service and Cloud@Customer, require TDE Encryption be enabled for all tablespaces by policy.
This document describes how Oracle Database Tablespace Encryption works for the following use cases:
New tablespaces created in a Database deployed in Cloud
Tablespaces that have been migrated to Cloud from an on-premises Database
Tablespaces in a standby database in Cloud with its corresponding primary database located on-premises (i.e. a Hybrid DR configuration)
Applies to Oracle Database Cloud Services including Base Database Service, Exadata Database on Dedicated Infrastructure and Exadata Database on Cloud@Customer. For Autonomous Database Cloud services, all database data is always encrypted.
