Encrypt / Decrypt data tool...

Idea:

A tool for encryption/decription of a column with multiple encrypiton options is the idea.

Both one way and two way encription should be possible.

 

Rationale:

Clients are in need of encrypting customers' personal identification data

before sharing it with a third party like consultants and analytics service providers etc.

When insights are provided back the data owner needs to quickly decrypt the ID field and get results or decide actions.

 

Clients:

This is especially an important case for banks, non bank financial institutions and telecom companies in EU countries and similar (Turkey has similar strict rules)

Ned, the Alteyrx CTO put together this macro back in 2013: http://inspiringingenuity.net/2013/08/08/encrypting-data/

 

While not perfect, it may get you started.

Yeah I got that one, thanks anyway,

 

Maybe we can fix it and even develop it with multiple types of encryption and reversable obfuscation  etc.

This is a hot  business in the analytics communty as gartner says ...

Hi @Atabarezz , are you able to share the workflow you found/built? Does it do proper RSA encryption?
