Abstract

The traditional data masking systems cannot provide reversible operations for database, and they will destroy the referential integrity of database. To solve the problems above, we provide a new data masking system based on format-preserving encryption (DMSD-FPE). This paper presents the model of it and highlights the appropriate masking algorithms for different databases. DMSD-FPE could guarantee that the format of cipher text is the same as plain text, and provides reversible operations for databases. Besides, the referential integrity is also kept. Furthermore, the experiments demonstrates that the system is efficient enough to adapt to practical uses.
