Querry Regarding detection of sensitive images like AADHAR CARD, PAN CARD

Jump to solution

Hi there,

We  have a requirement to monitor transfer of sensitive images data like AADHAR CARD, PAN CARD etc uploaded by our customers .

How can we go about creating classification criteria for these kind of data?

Can we manually classify them?

Will uploading such files under Register document will create the expected classification.

Any small help will be appreciated

Thanks in advance

Optical Character Recognition feature in DLP Discover
Technical Articles ID: KB91046

 


McAfee DLP Discover has an optical character recognition (OCR) feature for extracting text from image files. The extracted text can be matched to classification definitions to classify or remediate files. The OCR feature can be used when scanning any file-based repository. Database scans are not supported.
NOTE: The OCR feature is supported in McAfee DLP Discover 11.1.100 and later.


OCR is part of the text extraction feature. When the text extractor comes across an image file, a second pass is made with OCR to extract text and classify, remediate, or register the file according to the relevant rules. The feature also works with images saved as PDF. If a PDF contains both text and images, it is scanned as a text file in the usual way. OCR scanning works with all McAfee DLP-supported languages, and most Western and Asian languages.

For information about installing and updating the OCR package, see the McAfee Data Loss Prevention Discover 11.1.100 Installation Guide and KB91046.

Limitations
OCR is resource-intensive, and significantly increases the scan time if there are many image files in the repository. For this reason, it can be disabled with a checkbox on the Text Extractor page of the Server Configuration if it is not needed.

Hope this helps.
