5.4 Sanitizing Sensitive Information in Oracle Trace File Analyzer Collections

After collecting copies of diagnostic data, Oracle Trace File Analyzer uses Adaptive Classification and Redaction (ACR) to sanitize sensitive data in the collections.

To mask or sanitize sensitive data in collections:
tfactl set redact=mask|sanitize|none

mask: blocks out the sensitive data in all collections, for example, replaces myhost1 with *******

sanitize: replaces the sensitive data in all collections with random characters, for example, replaces myhost1 with orzhmv1

none (default): does not mask or sanitize sensitive data in collections

You can use the -sanitize and -mask options with the diagcollect command to sanitize or mask sensitive data in a specific collection.

To mask sensitive data:

  1. To mask sensitive data in all collections:
    tfactl set redact=mask
  2. To sanitize sensitive data in all collections:
    tfactl set redact=sanitize
  3. To mask or sanitize sensitive data in a specific collection:
    For example:
    tfactl diagcollect -SRDC ORA-00600 -mask
    tfactl diagcollect -SRDC ORA-00600 -sanitize
