IBM Data Privacy Passports content solution

Welcome to the IBM Data Privacy Passports content solution, your homepage for technical resources.

Data Privacy Passports protects eligible data as it moves throughout the enterprise and beyond. To make this protection possible, Data Privacy Passports packages the data at a field level into trusted data objects that can move within the enterprise and into distributed and hybrid cloud environments. Access to the data is controlled by a policy that you define. The policy ensures appropriate access to data based on the user’s need to know. Data Privacy Passports protects SQL data sources that are accessed using Java Database Connectivity (JDBC). An IBM® z15™ or LinuxONE III system is required.

For complete end-to-end protection of data, use Data Privacy Passports with IBM pervasive encryption.
