30.8 MySQL Enterprise Data Masking and De-Identification Overview

MySQL Enterprise Edition includes MySQL Enterprise Data Masking and De-Identification, implemented as a plugin library containing a plugin and a set of user-defined functions. Data masking hides sensitive information by replacing real values with substitutes. MySQL Enterprise Data Masking and De-Identification functions enable masking existing data using several methods such as obfuscation (removing identifying characteristics), generation of formatted random data, and data replacement or substitution.

For more information, see Section 6.4.8, “MySQL Enterprise Data Masking and De-Identification”.
