Redaction Methodologies

Teleskope offers granular controls for redacting sensitive information, enabling the safe and efficient anonymization of datasets for consumption.

Replace your sensitive data with:

Entity Type: Replaces identified sensitive data with its corresponding entity label.

Entity Type Incremented: Replaces sensitive data with its corresponding entity, appended by an incrementing ID with a given payload. If an entity is repeated, it retains the same replacement value.

Empty Strings: Removes sensitive data and replaces it with an empty string.

Masking Characters: Replaces sensitive data with configured characters. In Masking, Teleskope also allows users to replace portions of sensitive data, using specified characters, while ignoring other specified characters.

Deterministic Encryption (with Referential Integrity): Encrypts data using AES-SIV with a cryptographic key, and replaces the original value with a base64-encoded representation of the encrypted value. This enables the ability to revert encrypted data to its original state. This generates identical tokens for each instance of an identical input value.

Synthetic Data: Replaces sensitive data with mocked data of a corresponding length. This method optionally allows for referential integrity, enabling the ability to revert this data to its original values.

The following contain examples of each redaction method:

Redaction MethodBeforeAfter
Entity Type"Hi, my name is John Doe""Hi, my name is FIRST_NAME LAST_NAME."
Entity Type Incremented"Hi, my name is John Doe""Hi, my name is FIRST_NAME_1 LAST_NAME_1."
Empty Strings"Hi, my name is John Doe""Hi, my name is ."
Masking Characters"Hi, my name is John Doe""Hi, my name is **** ***."
Deterministic Encryption"Hi, my name is John Doe"“Hi, my name is FIRST_NAME(13):AT1OQpkW7qhzx LAST_NAME(20):A123k;j123B+e94xSYnK.”
Synthetic Data"Hi, my name is John Doe"“Hi, my name is Finn Qou”
