How to Perform Detection in Cassandra

The Detection process allows user to perform discovery in the Cassandra database. This process helps you to fetch sensitive information.


Following are the pre-requisites:

  1. Controller must be installed. For detailed information about the installation process, refer Install DSM Administrator in Linux and Install DSM Administrator in Windows.

  2. NoSQL IDP must be Installed. To know more on how to install NoSQL IDP, refer Install NoSQL IDP.

Steps to Perform Detection

The following section of this page outlines the step-by-step procedure to discover sensitive information stored in Cassandra database.

  1. The first step is to create a policy in the PK Protect. Policy allows you create a set of Sensitive Data Types which are presented in the data source. To know how to create a policy, refer DBMS Policy.

  2. The second step is to create a connection in NoSQL Connection Manager screen. The connection is established between controller and the IDP in order to access the Cassandra store, where data is kept. To know more on how to create a connection, refer Cassandra Connection.

  3. The last step in the process of performing Detection, is to create a task. The Task screen enables a user to selected location of the saved data in which sensitive information is stored. To know more on how to create a task, refer Create Task in Cassandra.

View Detection Results

Once the task is executed successfully, the results are generated which depict what all information in the selected document were sensitive. A list of detailed information is displayed in the Results screen. To know more about each tab in the Results screen, refer Cassandra Results.
