An encryption key is a random string of bits created for scrambling and unscrambling data. Encryption keys are created with algorithms designed to ensure each key is unpredictable and unique.
A computer or person cannot read the data without the key. If someone without the key were to access the data, it would be meaningless and useless.
Teradata leverages encryption keys managed by your cloud platform (AWS, Azure, or Google Cloud).
If your organization chooses to also use self-managed encryption keys, note that configuring them is part of environment provisioning. Contact Teradata for more information.
