Variation of Random Character Permutation Algorithm


The Masking CompanyCredit Name RandomCard component changesexpects a credit card number in a string that consists of integers, e.g.: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX. There might be separators in between the companydigits, namesuch elementas value“-“or into“/”. anotherIt random company name chosen fromproduces a listcard of morethe thansame 4000issuer Americanwith companies.the Thereparity aredigit companiesconsistent fromwith fourLuhn major industries, namely 732 healthcare companies, 847 financial companies, 1221 educational institutions, and 1290 e-commerce properties calculation.

Usage Instructions:

1. Configure a source that contains the column with alphabetical and numeric characters. The data in the column may also include any other character that will be treated as a separator.
2. Drag and Drop CompanyCredit Name RandomCard masking component, connect the source and the generic alpha numeric component with the source's precedence constraint:
3. Now, the precedence constraint (the blue arrow) passes proper meta-data to the Company Name RandomMaskingCreditCard component. If you click on constraint, you will see:
4. Now that the metadata for the GANCredit Card exists, and values are passed into the data masking component, please open the component editor:
5. In the second tab, there are input columns. Please check-mark only one column, the one that you will be masking with CompanyGeneric NameAlpha RandomNumeric algorithm:
6. This will create an extra column with the prefix “Masked_”.
7. Create a connection manager for the destination and configure source component for the destination. In the connection manager, in the tab “Mappings”, specify that you want newly created Field_Masked to be a field replacing the original value. For that, just click on the available input columns, choose the masked value, and map to the “Available Destination Columns”
8. Now, all the configurations are complete for the valid values. You can run the package with the CompanyCredit Name RandomCard Data Masking component, and see the results of data masking:

Error Handling

9. If, however, there are invalid values in the package's source, one would need to configure error handling. Invalid values are those that are not conforming to the rules of the entity. To handle invalid values, each data masking component has error handling precedence constraint. One needs to create error destination connection and connect red arrow (error handling constraint) with this destination. As the connection is made, one needs to configure the state of failure: “Fail”,”Ignore” or “Redirect”.
10. It is recommended that one re-directs the output into the error destination, so that later one be able to analyze and process data for quality purposes. The CompanyMasking NameCredit RandomCard components errors are the only ones not recommended for further processing as it is truly hard to break their format.
11. It is our suggestion that with GenericMasking AlphaCredit NumericCard component one should not process erroneous data without further analysis at all.
