Assigning a Key to a Block Volume

Assign a key to a block volume using the OCI Console..

Using the Console


The Block Volume service does not support encrypting volumes with keys encrypted using the Rivest-Shamir-Adleman (RSA) algorithm. When using your own keys, you must use keys encrypted using the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) algorithm. This applies to block volumes and boot volumes.
  1. Open the navigation menu and click Storage. Under Block Storage, click Block Volumes.
  2. Under List Scope, in the Compartment list, choose the compartment where you want to create a block volume that's encrypted with a Vault service master encryption key.
  3. Click Create Block Volume, and then follow the instructions in Creating a Volume.
