Quick Look

This is the Data Privacy tab.

The Data Privacy tab has the Configure Hash Algorithm and Salt configuration settings. The following table describes the parameters in this tab.

Hash AlgorithmDisplays a drop-down list of hash algorithms to use for any keys with a transform that does not specify algorithm type. Possible values are SHA-256 and Duplicate. Duplicate is a special algorithm available for administrators to use when validating that expected hashing behavior is occurring in the network.
SaltIndicates the optional salt value prepended to any value that is hashed. Best practices for security purposes dictate a salt value that is no less than 100 bits or 16 characters in length. Configuring a value ensures that obfuscated values are unique to this site and therefore more difficult to deduce. For more information on this field, see "Configure Data Obfuscation" in the Data Privacy Management guide.
ApplyApplies any changes.
