Please let me know if the EFS (Encrypted File System) on IBM-AIX operating system can be used to Encrypt the Oracle Database Files ?
I am having Oracle 11gR2 running on AIX 6.1
I would appreciate if you provide me any useful documentation, paper, urls or any additional info on same.
Have you tried it? My initial instinct is that it is a bad idea whether it works or not. Why utilize the overhead required to encrypt 100% of the database ... we are talking OBJ$, TAB$, UNDO, when what actually might require encryption is a single column.
