Ability to Configure Transport Layer Security Connections Without Client Wallets

Security → Encryption

An Oracle Database client is no longer required to provide a wallet to hold well-known CA root certificates if they are available in the local system. The Oracle Database wallet search order determines the location (Windows (Microsoft Certificate Store) or Linux) of these certificates in the local system. Transport Layer Security (TLS) requires either one-way authentication or two-way authentication. In one-way TLS authentication, which is commonly used for HTTPS connections, you will no longer need to install and configure a client wallet to hold the server's CA certificate as long as it is already available in the local system. If the server's CA certificate is not installed in the local systems, client wallet is still required. Starting in this release, you no longer need to install and configure a wallet to hold a well-known root certificate if it is already available in the local system.

Business Benefit: This feature greatly simplifies the Oracle Database client installation and the use of TLS protocol to encrypt Oracle Database client-server communications.
