MySQL 8.0.33 Enterprise Edition: Data Masking Component
MySQL Enterprise Edition now provides data masking and de-identification capabilities based on components, rather than being based on a plugin library that was introduced in MySQL 8.0.13.
Next to now supporting multibyte character sets, the component implementation provides dedicated privileges to manage dictionaries and extends the list of specific types to include:
Canada Social Insurance Number
United Kingdom National Insurance Number
International Bank Account Number
Universally Unique Identifier (UUID)
An improved table-based dictionary registry replaces the file-based dictionary used by the plugin. For a summary of the differences between the component and plugin implementations, see Data-Masking Components Versus the Data-Masking Plugin. Existing plugin users should uninstall the server-side plugin and drop its loadable functions before installing the new MySQL Enterprise Data Masking and De-Identification components.
