  1. Enhancement: Advanced Secrets Detection

  2. Detector: HIPAA PHI

  3. Detector: File Detector- Based Exclusions

  4. Redaction: Confluence

  1. The Advanced Secrets Detection improves the accuracy of the existing API key detector and extends it to identify keys from top SaaS and Cloud vendors and determines if a vendor key is an active risk. Advanced API key detector performs using two models:

    . Vendor-specific API key model - detects secrets from the top 25 SaaS and Cloud services. Nightfall labels the secret findings by vendor and service type and determines with the secret if it is an active risk.

    . General API key model - an ML-based model encompassing the complete range of secrets types and forms. The model includes regex candidate scanning, a ML-based token model, and an ML-based context model.

  2. Nightfall HIPAA Detector uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) to accurately identify the exposure of patient data with maximum accuracy and relevance. It uses 15 dimensions of patient data (like person name, Date of Birth, Social Security Number, address, diagnosis, medications, etc.) in concert.

  3. You can now bulk ignore noise generated by known file sources, file types or any finding that matches an entry in a file-based dictionary.

    You can do this by customizing a detector to ignore findings in a given file type, a given file of a match in a dictionary file. Customers can utilize existing dictionaries, file type detectors or file fingerprint detectors to author an exclusion rule.

  4. Nightfall can perform manual or automated remediation action to redact text-based findings in pages and blog posts within Confluence.
