The Document Redaction API, also known as PII Redaction, is an interface that assists software developers in adding redaction capabilities to their applications. It is similar to the Document Anonymization API but is specifically designed for redaction purposes.
The API enables the automated removal of specific information in documents, including text, images, and other media. Its functions are user-friendly and easy to implement. Document anonymization aims to protect individuals' privacy by replacing or removing any personally identifiable information (PII) from the document.
Both document redaction and anonymization involve altering documents to safeguard sensitive information. Redaction focuses on removing confidential details, while anonymization is centered on general privacy protection, for example, by deleting or substituting personally identifiable information.
Document Redaction APIs are commonly used for generating legal documents, managing government documents, and performing privacy-compliant redaction of medical records. For example, they can be used to comply with HIPAA regulations in the United States.
For users seeking a cost-effective engine, opting for an open-source model is recommended. Here is the list of the best PII Redaction Open Source Models:
This open-source model provides offline semi-automatic data redaction for legal documents by masking named entities identified using machine learning. The output of the redaction process must be reviewed by humans to ensure that all sensitive information has been properly masked.
Codexify enables users to redact sensitive data from CSV, Excel, and JSON files using a variety of redaction methods, such as fixed string, random value, and hash functions. This ensures that sensitive data is removed from the files while preserving the integrity of the remaining data.
Phileas is a Java library that redacts personally identifiable information (PII), protected health information (PHI), and other sensitive information from text. The library analyses the text to identify sensitive information such as names, ages, and addresses.
Fuko\Masked is a small PHP library for masking sensitive data: it replaces blacklisted elements with their redacted values.
Protect confidentiality with dynamic redaction by replacing sensitive data from string or JSON format API Docs.
Open Source Model for text redaction in PDFs.
While open-source models offer many advantages, they also have potential drawbacks and challenges. Here are some cons of using open-source models:
