Securing files using PGP encryption (Part-1-Encryption): Oracle Integration by Ankur Jain
Are you scared the data can be hijacked during transmission of the files if we are doing transactions using the Integration Cloud? Do not scare, read the article and feel comfortable to transmit the files in a secured manner.
Oracle Integration Cloud provides Pretty Good Privacy (PGP) mechanism to encrypt or decrypt the files which allow us to read/write files in a secure manner.
So, we only required PGP public and private keys to transfer files in a secure manner.
- Do you want to encrypt the file?: So use PGP public key to encrypt
- Do you want to decrypt the file? Use PGP private key to decrypt
We are dividing encryption and decryption into two parts:
Part 1): Will demonstrate how to encrypt the files
Part 2): Will demonstrate how to decrypt the files
In this article, we’ll cover Part-1
Use Case: We’ll read the plain CSV from FTP location and create the encrypted CSV file on FTP location
Let’s see how to achieve this.
Before we encrypt the file, we have to upload the PGP public key into the Integration FTP connection. So, I am considering we already have one FTP connection in place. Open the FTP connection and click on the Configure Security button. Notice the PGP Public Key field, click on the Checkbox and click on the Upload button. Read the complete article here.
