Integrating with Voltage SecureData

Voltage SecureData is a suite of encryption technologies that let you integrate end-to-end data encryption into other applications. It uses Format-Preserving Encryption (FPE): the encrypted values have the same overall format as the unencrypted data. This feature means you do not have to change the data types of table columns that you want to encrypt. It also preserves reference integrity: the encrypted values have the same sort order as unencrypted data, and encrypted values can be cross-referenced between tables, as long as each instance of the value is encrypted with the same key.

See the Voltage web site for more about SecureData.

This section explains how you can integrate the SecureData encryption feature into Vertica.
