Masking Methods

In the Data Masking profile, you configure the masking method you want to use, which UDR types and fields you want to mask/unmask, and any masking method-specific settings.

There are three different masking methods that you can use:

  • Crypto, which is used for encrypting data with either AES-128 or AES-256. Can be used for both obscuring and unmasking data.
  • Database, which is used for storing masked and unmasked data in a database enabling the data to be unmasked at a later stage.
  • Hash, which is used for obscuring data only. You will not be able to unmask data using this method.
