Data Security Center (DSC) supports custom de-identification templates. You can create a de-identification template and add de-identification algorithms that are frequently used in the same scenario to the template. This avoids repeated configuration of de-identification algorithms and improves the efficiency in sensitive data processing. This topic describes how to create and manage de-identification templates.

Create a de-identification template

You can create an unlimited number of de-identification templates.

  1. Log on to the DSC console.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Data desensitization > Desensitization Template.
  3. On the Desensitization Template page, click New template.
  4. In the New template panel, set the parameters as required. The following table describes the parameters for creating a de-identification template.Create a template
    Parameter Description
    Template name The name of the de-identification template.
    Template description The description of the de-identification template. You can enter information such as the scenario to which the de-identification template is applied.
    Matching mode The mode in which the de-identification template finds its matched sensitive data. Valid values:
    • Sensitive type: If you select this option, you must select a sensitive data type that is supported by DSC, such as vehicle identification number and unified social credit code, and a de-identification algorithm for the sensitive data type.
    • Field name: If you select this option, you must specify the field to be de-identified and select a de-identification algorithm for the field.
    Rule list Select a sensitive data type or enter a field to be de-identified and specify a de-identification algorithm. DSC supports the following de-identification algorithms:
    • Hashing
    • Redaction
    • Substitution
    • Rounding
    • Encryption
    • Shuffling
    • Data decryption
    For more information, see Supported data de-identification algorithms.

    You can configure multiple rules in a template. To configure more rules, click Increase algorithm.

Manage de-identification templates

  • Modify a de-identification template
    To update the description or rules of a de-identification template, find the template on the Desensitization Template page and click Edit in the Actions column. In the Edit panel, modify the description or rules of the template.Modify a de-identification template
  • Delete a de-identification template
    To delete a de-identification template that is no longer applicable to the current business scenario, find the template on the Desensitization Template page and click Delete in the Actions column.
    Note Deleted templates cannot be recovered. Exercise caution when you delete templates.
