Oracle 23c Improved and More Secure Local Auto-Login Wallets

There has been something that’s bothered me for a long time, Oracle 23c addresses it. In the old days, a database could be copied over to another machine along with it’s auto-login wallet; and the auto-login wallet would work. In 23c the auto-login wallet is now tied to the hardware/virtual machine.

When you create a new wallet using orapki, it creates a version 7 wallet, and if you alter an existing version 6 wallet with orapki, it will be converted to a version 7 wallet.

Note, in Oracle 23c, the version 6 wallet is depreciated. This a big enhancement to the security of the wallet.
