Optim data masking support for AWS DynamoDB

  • 1.  Optim data masking support for AWS DynamoDB

    Posted Thu August 12, 2021 03:13 PM
    I've learnt in the IBM Optim forums that IBM Infosphere Optim supports data masking  for MongoDB. I wonder if IBM Infosphere Optim data masking works with AWS DynamoDB.
    Please share any insight into this requirement.

    Hi Krishna,

    Connecting Optim with MongoDB or AWS Databases is not something straight forward.

    You can use IBM Federation Server to create wrapper using the ODBC/JDBC drivers from Amazon DocumentDB/Dynamo.
    Optim treats this database via federation as DB2 database, which will allow Optim to extract the data.

    The process is similar to how you can connect Optim with DB2 iSeries.

    As an alternate solution, we have an IBM product called DPU (Data Privacy for Unstructured Data) which will help you to Mask NoSQL databases by using Optim ODPP.
