Redacts the PII information. This package uses Stanford NER package to identify and scrub Name, organization and location. It also redacts email, ssn, driver license, passport no. It aggressively removes any number with more than 3 consecutive digits. Use AddToWhitelist to whitelist any pattern. In order to use this you must have JAVA 8+ installed.

Getting Started

Install the nuget package to get started.

The usage is: var redactor = new PIIRedactor(); var redactedData = redactor.GetRedactedData("My name is John Doe. My email is m@n.o");

The redacted string looks like : My name is xxxx xxx. My email is x@x.x

If you want to whitelist any pattern i.e any number with 6-8 consecutive digits, it should be done as follows: redactor.AddToWhitelist(new RegexFinder("\b\d{6,8}\b"));

Similarly to add a new redactable pattern follow the below syntax. It will redact any word with 6-8 consecutive digits. redactor.Add(new RegexFinder("\b\d{6,8}\b"));


In order to use this package , you have to have JAVA 8 installed. If you don't want to use java, you have to set redactor.PIIRedactorConfig.IncludeEntityRedaction = false;


We use appveyor for versioning.
