Overview of Compliance Documents

The Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Compliance Documents service lets you view and download compliance documents that you could previously access only by submitting a request to the Elevated Support Portal.

Note

Types of Compliance Documents

When viewing compliance documents, you can filter on the following types:

  • Attestation. A Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS) Attestation of Compliance document.
  • Audit. A general audit report.
  • Bridge Letter (BridgeLetter). A bridge letter. Bridge letters provide compliance information for the period of time between the end date of an SOC report and the date of the release of a new SOC report.
  • Certificate. A document indicating certification by a particular authority, with regard to certification requirements and examination results conforming to said requirements.
  • SOC3. A Service Organization Controls 3 audit report that provides information relating to a service organization's internal controls for security, availability, confidentiality, and privacy.
  • Other. A compliance document that doesn't fit into any of the preceding, more specific categories.

If you need to further narrow down what documents are displayed, you can combine the type filter with the environment filter.

Types of Environments

The environments, or business pillars or platforms, to which the documents belong include:

  • OCI. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is a set of complementary cloud infrastructure services that let you build and run applications and services in a highly available hosted environment.
  • PAAS. Oracle Platform as a Service (PaaS) provides various platforms to build and deploy applications within the public, private, or hybrid cloud.
