This allows sensitive data to pass securely over networks that would otherwise be considered insecure. Traffic between your data center and your Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Dedicated Compute Classic site is encrypted and transmitted through this secure tunnel. So your data can’t be stolen or intercepted.
