Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

What is Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI)?

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) is a set of complementary cloud services that enable you to build and run a range of applications and services in a highly available hosted environment. OCI provides high-performance compute capabilities (as physical hardware instances) and storage capacity in a flexible overlay virtual network that is securely accessible from your on-premises network.

Why Should You Use the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Connector?

The Oracle Cloud Infrastructure connector provides visibility into the assets and users in your environment. You can use this visibility to:

  • ensure assets are managed per your security policies

  • ensure users are managed per your security policies

  • derive relationships between assets, users, applications, and data

How Does This Connector Work?

Lucidum executes read-only requests to the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure REST API and ingests only meta-data about Oracle Cloud Infrastructure devices. Lucidum does not retrieve any data stored on your assets.

Field

Description

Example

Region ID

Region ID for your OCI instance. A region is a localized geographic area.

type \.oci\oci_api_key_public.pem

API Key Fingerprint

The fingerprint associated with the API key.

An API key fingerprint is a short form of an app's digital certificate, known as its SHA-1 fingerprint.

HTTP Proxy Host

If you are using a proxy server to allow this connector to communicate with on-premises devices, enter the IP address for the proxy server, usually 192.168.255.6:3128.

192.168.255.6

HTTP Proxy Port

If you are using a proxy server to allow this connector to communicate with on-premises devices, enter the port for the proxy server, usually 3128.

Tenancy OCID

The OCID for Tenancy.

When you subscribe to Oracle Cloud services, Oracle creates a tenancy for you. You can think of the tenancy as your account, but it is also a secure and isolated partition within Oracle Cloud Infrastructure where you can create, organize, and administer your cloud resources.

To find your tenancy OCID:

Creating a User

You must create a user account in OCI. Lucidum will use the user account to access the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure API.

  1. Log in to the OCI interface as an administrator.

  2. Follow the steps in https://docs.cloud.oracle.com/iaas/Content/GSG/Tasks/addingusers.htm .

Required Permissions

Assign the user account all the “inspect” permissions for APIs.

For details, see https://docs.oracle.com/en-us/iaas/Content/Identity/Reference/corepolicyreference.htm#Permissi

For more details, view this list of policies that include groups and permissions: https://docs.oracle.com/en-us/iaas/Content/Identity/Concepts/commonpolicies.htm
