Enable Data At Rest Encryption
How to enable and other information in relation to REST Encryption

This means that you can encrypt data in the database such that users with access to view data in the database will see ciphertext in those columns. However, all users with authorized access to the data via Cinchy will see the data as plain text.
In order to use this feature, your database administrator will be need to create a database master key (see below for instructions).
