Default encryption schemes for APIs

Depending on the API you're using, you can use some default schemes but not others. For more information, see the following topics.


Schemes not listed in the Privacera docs are deprecated. See Deprecated encryption schemes for more information.


For a scheme with a numeric format type and FPE algorithm, the numeric data on the calls to /protect and /unprotect must be a string.

To preserve the format and length, the encrypted output must also be stored as a string.

Example: Encrypting a number via FPE like 123456 might result in output like 027931.
