Support of encrypted fields by Anonymization API
OpenPages 184.108.40.206 introduced the capability to anonymize data through a set of API methods. These methods do not work on encrypted fields, meaning that there is currently no way to anonymize data if it is stored in fields that are encrypted.
When storing sensitive data in OpenPages it is a common practice to encrypt the data fields this data is stored in.
Anonymization is generally applied to sensitive data.
With the current restriction in the anonymization API it is not possible to anonymize sensitive data stored in encrypted fields, thereby severely limiting the usefullness of this new capability.
1) provide the capability to anonymize data in encrypted fields in the anonymization API,
2) provide a means to encrypt / decrypt fields through the API, so that the encryption on fields can be programmatically removed before performing the anonymization and then again applied after the anonymization process is complete.
