Tablespace file encryption

Tablespace encryption for user-created tablespaces are enabled by default and that applies to SE and EE (tablespace file encryption).

On certain service instances hosting an Oracle 11g Standard Edition database, attempts to create a tablespace fail with a wallet error.

In this case, you must use the following command first :
dbaascli tde config --ks_login auto

To validate :
  1. connect to the database and check for the existence of the encrypt_new_tablespaces parameter :
    select tablespace_name, encrypted from dba_tablespaces;
  2. create a new tablespace. (notice that we are not including any reference to encryption)
    create tablespace TEST datafile '/u02/app/oracle/oradata/ORCL/test.dbf' size 1m;
  3. check how it got created
    select tablespace_name, encrypted from dba_tablespaces;
