Encrypting the storage stream (BLOB)

Updated on July 1, 2021

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 Encrypting data 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 select the Encrypt BLOB check box on the General 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.
