Presentation schemes

:

For background information, see Overview of Privacera Encryption

Presentation schemes control how decrypted data is presented to authorized users. After data is decrypted, a presentation scheme displays the data in a suitable form. If no presentation scheme is specified, the decrypted data is shown in its original form.

If a user is not permitted to view the data, an error message is displayed. For information about granting user access to schemes, see Scheme Policies.Scheme policies overview
