To check Oracle Data Pump dump files for validity, you can now use checksums that are added to the dump file.
Oracle Data Pump is used for migrating application data from on-premises Oracle Database instances into the Oracle Cloud, and also for copying dump files to on-premises.
In this release, a checksum is now added to the dump file. You can use the checksum to help to confirm that the file is valid after a transfer to or from the object store and also after saving dump files on on-premises and that it has no accidental or malicious changes.
This practice shows how to use the checksum to confirm that an Oracle Data Pump dump file is valid after a transfer to or from the object store and also after saving dump files on on-premises.The checksum ensures that no accidental or malicious changes occurred.
