Does the TiDB database have a data masking function, such as creating a masking policy to process sensitive data columns in certain tables and then applying it to database users?

Similar to openGauss, TiDB can implement dynamic data masking functionality.

There shouldn’t be any. It still needs to be implemented by the application.

Isn’t it more reassuring to implement the desensitization algorithm yourself? Otherwise, why bother with desensitization, right?

This kind of desensitization is still somewhat different from data encryption.

This data masking strategy implementation is independent of the client.

Desensitization usually involves creating your own desensitization rules and then running batch processing on historical data.

This is also a way of data anonymization.
