Hi,

Can anyone please help me in security key management for encryption and decryption.

I have a scenario like below:

I need to create a package with encryption key, generated by oracle and need to wrap the package. But this has to be done dynamically. (The key cannot be visible to anybody).

Can anybody please give me some ideas about this?

Thanks,
Anantha

Wrap is not encryption and before 10g if your encryption key is a string it will be in clear after wrapping.

In 10g, you can dynamically create a wrap package using dbms_ddl.create_wrapped.

Thanks for your reply Michel. I am so sorry, forgot to mention that I am using oracle db version 9. I have to do the below steps:

1. generate a key
2. create (or recreate) a package with that generated key
3. wrap the package.

I have to do the above things dynamically without any user interaction.

Please let me know if you have any idea on this.

Thanks,
Anantha

In 9i, you have to use wrap utility.
Search for "executing an OS command in PL/SQL" (or the like) on AskTom.
