Filter Profiles
Describes Filter Profiles and how they work.
The types of sensitive information that are identified and manipulated by Phirestream are defined in files called filter profiles.
A filter profile specifies the types of sensitive information and how to redact those types. Phirestream selects which filter profile to apply based on the name of the Apache Kafka topic. For example, if a message is published to a topic called healthcare, Phirestream will apply the healthcare filter profile.
The filter profiles are stored under /opt/phirestream/profiles. Each filter profile has a name, a list of types of sensitive information and redaction strategies for each, and configuration values. From the moment Phirestream receives text, the matching filter profile determines how that text will be redacted before it is published to Apache Kafka.
