Exporting Oracle data from an encrypted column

Amarjyoti Dewri has published an excellent description of the process of using Oracle to export data from an encrypted column:

Amar notes that the Oracle Data Pump utility is required to export Oracle encrypted data columns:

"Exporting encrypted data is not supported by Oracle EXP/IMP utilities; however Oracle has provided Data Pump utilities (EXPDP/IMPDP) which can be used achieve this.

The Data Pump utilities allow export/import of encrypted column data when used with ENCRYPTION_PASSWORD parameter, provided that Transparent Data Encryption has been setup on the source as well as target database. The password provided in the parameter is not related to wallet’s master key; it can be any arbitrary value."

He concludes, "From the above examples we can see that encrypted data can be exported and imported using Oracle Data Pump utility with ENCRYPTION_PASSWORD parameter."
