KB-1754: How to obscure sensitive data in the Centrify debug log file?

Centrify DirectControl ,  

12 April,16 at 11:43 AM

Applies to: All versions of Centrify DirectControl on all Unix platforms.

Question:
How do I obscure sensitive data before I send the debug log to Centrify for analysis?

Answer:
In Centrify DirectControl, there is a command, adobfuscate.  In order to use this function, you have to:

1. Create or modify the pattern file to identify data that you want to hide (the default pattern file is placed in /etc/centrifydc/adobfuscate.conf).

2. Run: adobfuscate -f /var/log/centrifydc.log -m myMap
(/var/log/centrifydc.log is the log file and myMap is the map file that created).

3. After the map file is created, run
adobfuscate -f /var/log/centrifydc.log -m myMap -o
