Presentation Schemes

As background, refer to the definition of terms in the introduction to this guide.

A presentation scheme controls how decrypted data should be presented to authorized users. After data is decrypted, a presentation scheme can obfuscate it again in a form suitable for displaying to those authorized users.

  • If no presentation scheme is specified, the decrypted data is viewable in its original form.

  • If the user does not have access rights to view the data, an error message is displayed. For information about granting user access to schemes, see Scheme Policies.

Viewing the System Presentation Schemes and Other Functions#

To see the system presentation schemes:

  3. Click the Presentation Scheme tab.

You can import, export, define new presentation schemes or modify existing ones.

List of System Presentation Schemes#

The following is a list of the Privacera-supplied system presentation schemes. The name of a scheme in general describes the type of data the scheme is designed to encrypt.

The formats, algorithms, and scopes associated with each scheme are described in Reference: Formats, Algorithms, and Scopes.
