FP Encryption - HDFS

FP or Format Preserving encryption can only be executed on structured files.  Following options are available specific to these:· 

  • (Re) Scan All Files: To scan all the files i.e., old, and new for a given connection, check the (Re) Scan All Files checkbox. If the option is not checked, then Incremental Scanning is performed i.e., only newly added files will be scanned.

  • Skip Files with No Extension: Check this checkbox to skip the scanning of the files which have no extension. Once the task has been executed successfully, the result can be seen under the Skipped Files tab of the By Task screen for the Results module. The reason for skipping the file will be cited as File Name without extension under the Skipped Reason column.

  • Structured: This option is checked by default. For details about how to create a structure refer to Structure Management.

To proceed further for remaining steps, refer to step 4 of Create a HDFS task.
