Preparing OCI

Before registering your Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) application instance with Oracle CASB Cloud Service, create and configure a dedicated OCI user account.

Prerequisite: Ensure that you have a public/private key pair available to use with OCI.

The steps below guide you through performing four tasks in OCI:

  1. Creating an identity account, or user.

  2. Getting the public key for the user from Oracle CASB Cloud Service.
  3. Creating an identity group.

  4. Assigning the identity account, or user to the identity group.

  5. Creating an identity policy for the group.

Note:

Oracle CASB Cloud Service uses OCI SDK 1.2.28 to monitor the us-ashburn-1, us-phoenix-1, and eu-frankfurt-1 regions.

Preparing a Public/Private Key Pair

Ensure that you have a public/private key pair available for use by Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) before you prepare and register an OCI instance to be monitored by Oracle CASB Cloud Service.

  1. Select Configuration from the Navigation menu. If the Navigation Menu is not displayed, click the Navigation Menu icon Image of the Navigation Menu icon. to display it.
  2. From the Configuration submenu, select CASB Key-Pair Management.
  3. If the Key generation date is not new enough, according to your organization's security policies, click Create new keys.
  4. Click Generate new keys.

    The User public key field is updated with a new key value.

  5. Click the Copy to Clipboard icon Image of the Copy to Clipboard icon. to copy the User public key value to the clipboard.

    You can also use the Download icon Image of the Download icon. to download the public key to a file.

  6. Log in to the OCI console using the credentials for the dedicated Oracle CASB Cloud Service account user.
  7. Drop down the menu from the user icon in the top right corner and select the user ID.
  8. On the User Details page, under API Keys, click Add Public Key.

    Note:

    OCI allows a maximum of three public keys to be added. If the OCI console displays an error message indicating that the maximum number has already been reached, delete one of the keys listed under API Keys, and then add the new key.

  9. In the Add Public Key dialog box, paste the public key you just copied from the CASB Key-Pair Management page into the PUBLIC KEY box.

    If you downloaded the key to a file, open the oci_api_key_public.pem file, copy the entire contents, and then paste into the PUBLIC KEY box.

  10. When you have completed the steps above in the OCI console, return to the CASB Key-Pair Management page and click Install new keys.

    Caution:

    If another person, such as an admin, performs the steps above in the OCI console, ensure that those steps have been completed before you click Install new keys. Clicking Install new keys before the new public key has been added in the OCI console will disable all currently registered OCI application instances.
