Identifying the subset of data that you want to encrypt with Hyper Protect Data Controller might require the input of multiple people in your organization. It requires an understanding of your organization’s policy on data encryption and privacy as well as national and international regulations.
Ultimately, you need to identify the databases that contain data to encrypt and the specific fields in those databases. Hyper Protect Data Controller can encrypt SQL data sources that are accessed using Java Database Connectivity (JDBC).
Hyper Protect Data Controller protects the subset of data that you identify by encrypting it and storing it in encrypted data objects (EDOs). A EDO includes instructions for opening it and can be moved from environment to environment. You decide whether values in a EDO are masked when returned to users. Considerations for working with EDOs, such as data expansion, can also impact the data that you want to encrypt.
