Data Masker Substitution Datasets
Datasets are essential to many masking operations and are installed with the Data Masker software - there is no extra charge for these. The datasets configured in the masking rule indicate the type of replacement data which will be entered into the specified target table and column when the rule is run.
It is important to realize that Data Masker datasets are far more than simple lists of replacement data. Data Masker datasets transparently handle a large number of complex options. For example they can generate correct alphanumeric positioning in various national bank account numbers, construct correct checksums for credit card numbers and use ranges to generate known valid or invalid national ID numbers. A wide variety of datasets (see below) are available to provide a range of realistic looking data.
Datasets have options which provide further configuration information and each dataset offers configuration options specific to its requirements. For example, the Dates, Random dataset offers the ability to set the starting and ending points of the date range and the Zip Codes, US dataset can generate invalid or valid numbers and provides a number of formatting options - including Zip+4.
Note: It is quite possible to add your own custom dataset to the Data Masker system. All that is required is to place a simple text file (with a special naming convention) in the datasets directory. Please see the User Defined datasets help page for more information on how to build your own datasets.
Listed below are the datasets currently available with the Data Masker software. More datasets are added all the time - and we are always interested in hearing new ideas. If you have a requirement which cannot be fulfilled by the datasets below, please do let us know by emailing us at Support@DataMasker.com.
