Field Encryption and Decryption
After defining their input sources and metadata, users can choose from the menu of protection functions in the output target field layout editor illustrated on the previous "Profile" page. The first choice in the drop-down menu is for encryption (or decryption), which brings up this dialog:
This dialog is applying format-preserving encryption to the "BUYS.SYMBOL" column in a data source. This dialog supports all the built-in encryption and decryption functions which can be applied at the field level, with or without explicit encryption key phrases. Additional encryption functions or keys, as well as data masking, hashing, encoding, de-ID, pseudonymization, and other FieldShield protection functions, can apply to multiple fields at the same time.
For more information about the application of encryption functions in FieldShield, generally, refer to:
