Configure predefined encryption patterns

Edge Encryption ships with a set of predefined encryption patterns. You can activate these patterns instead of creating your own patterns.

Before you begin

In order to use encryption patterns, you must install and set up a proxy database in your network. This is the same database used for order-preserving encryption. In order to create or edit encryption patterns, you must be connected to the instance through the proxy.

Role required: security-admin

About this task

The input type defines how you are going to enter the pattern. It does not impact how the pattern is used. To enter a series of character types use the basic input type. To enter a Java RegEx expression use the advanced input type. To use one of the preconfigured patterns, edit one of the patterns on the Advanced Patterns list.

Procedure

  1. Navigate to Edge Encryption Configuration > Encryption Patterns > Advanced Patterns.
  2. Click on the pattern you want to use.
    You can change the pattern to match your specific requirements.
    The Encryption Pattern form is shown.
  3. Click Active, and then click Update.
    The Encryption Patterns list is shown.
