Oracle Database: Database and File Encryption and Thales HSMs

Oracle Advanced Security, an option to Oracle Database, helps address privacy and regulatory requirements. Oracle Advanced Security provides data encryption and strong authentication services to the Oracle database, safeguarding sensitive data against unauthorized access to the network, operating system or through theft of hardware or backup media.

The secure storage of master encryption keys is the foundation of any robust security solution. The integration of Thales Luna hardware security modules (HSMs) with Oracle Advanced Security transparent data encryption (TDE) allows for the Oracle master encryption keys to be stored in the HSM, offering greater database security and centralized key management. The master encryption key never leaves the secure confines of the HSM. Oracle integrates with Thales Enterprise HSM to provide users with a powerful combined Thales and Oracle Database Database and File Encryption solution.

The TDE master encryption key is part of a two-tiered key architecture that protects the encryption keys used to encrypt the data. The TDE master key can be stored with minimal security, in software only in an Oracle Wallet (a PKCS#12 formatted file), or in a highly secure and auditable format in the Thales Enterprise HSM. This two-tiered key architecture allows for easy re-keying and high performance.

About Oracle Cloud

Oracle's complete, integrated approach makes it easy for companies to get started in the cloud and even easier to expand as business grows. With Oracle Cloud Platform, developers, IT professionals, and business leaders to develop, extend, connect, and secure cloud applications and share data. Companies use Oracle's infrastructure as a service (IaaS) to run any workload in the cloud, encompassing compute, storage, network, container services, migration tools and more. Oracle Cloud facilitates companies’ efforts to innovate faster, increase productivity, and lower costs. Whether on-premises or in the cloud, Oracle Cloud Platform offers the same set of capabilities to give organizations the flexibility and choice they need to optimize their operations.

Solution Overview

Thales data encryption and key management solutions work in the Oracle Cloud to allow customers to deploy client-side encryption, centralized key management and tokenization to secure their cloud workloads. Data control is a fundamental concern for organizations moving to the cloud. With SafeNet data encryption and key management solutions, organizations can keep their data safe in the cloud while demonstrating their persistent control in compliance with their regulatory obligations.

Oracle Database TDE with Thales CipherTrust Manager

Oracle Transparent Data Encryption (TDE) provides the infrastructure necessary for implementing encryption within the database. It enables the organizations to encrypt sensitive application data such as credit card numbers on storage media completely transparent to the application (table columns or tablespaces). It encrypts the data in the data files so that in case they are obtained by other parties it is not possible to access the clear text data. In the databases where TDE is configured, any user who has access on an encrypted table, can see the data in clear text because Oracle transparently decrypts the data for any user having the necessary privileges.

This solution can be used within Oracle Exadata, which is an optimized, high-performance platform designed for organizations that handle extremely large quantities of data quickly.

TDE uses a two-tier encryption key architecture consisting of:

  • A master encryption key that is used to encrypt secondary keys used for column encryption and tablespace encryption.
  • One or more table and/or tablespace keys. These keys are used to encrypt one or more specific columns or the keys used to encrypt tablespaces. There is only one table key regardless of the number of encrypted columns in a table and it is stored in the data dictionary. The tablespace key is stored in the header of each data file of the encrypted tablespace.

The table and tablespace keys are encrypted using the master key. The master key is stored in an External Security Module (ESM) that can be one of the following:

  • An Oracle Wallet - a secure container outside of the database. It is encrypted with a password.
  • CipherTrust Manager - a device used to secure keys and perform cryptographic operations. Oracle interfaces to the device using a PKCS#11 library supplied by the CipherTrust Manager vendor.

CipherTrust Manager provides a secure location for storing the TDE master encryption key. Thales PKCS#11 provides an industry-standard interface that enables the Oracle database to communicate with CipherTrust Manager.
