Understanding Oracle Wallet

Oracle Wallet is a container that stores authentication and signing credentials.

Trusted certificates are stored in the Oracle Wallet when the wallet is used for security credentials.

PeopleSoft enables you to create an Oracle Wallet in two ways:

  • ORAPKI command line - The ORAPKI tool is available with Oracle database, so this tool can be used only by those users have a license for Oracle database.

  • OpenSSL utility - Users who do not have a license for Oracle database can use this utility to create their own certificates.

After creating an Oracle Wallet, you must configure SSL for the Workstation Listener and Jolt Listener ports to ensure secure client and server communications.
