Protect Sensitive Data
Configure a data obfuscation profile to prevent unauthorized access to sensitive or personal identifiable information in JSA.
Data obfuscation is the process of strategically hiding data from JSA users. You can hide custom properties, normalized properties, such as user names, or you can hide the content of a payload, such as credit card or social security numbers.
The expressions in the data obfuscation profile are evaluated against the payload and normalized properties. If the data matches the obfuscation expression, the data is hidden in JSA. Users who try to query the database directly cannot see the sensitive data. The data must be reverted back to its original form, or deobfuscated, by uploading the private key that was generated when the data obfuscation profile was created.
To ensure that JSA can still correlate on the hidden data values, the obfuscation process is deterministic. It displays the same set of characters each time the data value is found.
