Encrypting the Storage Stream

In Pega Platform, you can encrypt the storage stream (BLOB) by using a platform or custom cipher.

  1. Choose and apply the type of cipher for your implementation of Pega Platform.
    • Platform cipher
    • Custom cipher
    For more information, see Types of ciphers and the Pega Community article Creating a custom cipher in Pega Platform.
  2. Update the class forms. Perform the following actions:
    1. Open each class form that is to hold instances that have encrypted Storage Stream values and click Encrypt BLOB? on the Basic tab.
    2. Save the class form.
    3. Repeat steps (a) and (b) for all affected classes.
Result: Encryption is enabled. Your application can create instances of the class normally.
