The release of DataVeil 3.3.0 today features the inclusion of a new mask specifically designed for masking the UK’s National Insurance number (NINO).

It includes validation to detect valid NINO’s that DataVeil shall mask and also detection of invalid NINO’s that DataVeil shall preserve. Preserving invalid values can be very useful for testing and detecting problems that may be found in production data.

This mask shall also preserve the original format of every individual NINO found. i.e. Any separators found will be preserved exactly in the masked value.
