  • Question

  • What kind of security does Data Factory have in terms of encryption. The docs talk about encrypt/decrypt credentials for the on-premises data store. However, is there any in-flight/rest encryption for the data thats being moved/copied?

  • Hi Rajeev,

    For Data at rest, many data stores support data encryption at rest. We suggest you enable specific data encryption mechanism for those data stores. As there is not data other than the on premise data store credentials stored by Gateway. ADF only acts as a orchestrator and passes instructions to the Gateway which directly reads/ writes data from/ to respective data stores.

    For Data in motion/ transit/ flight, all data transfers between Data Movement services/ gateway and cloud data stores are via secure channel HTTPS or TLS, subject to the cloud data store supporting HTTPS or TLS. There is no additional encryption option at Gateway level right now.

    Let me know if you need any other details. Do you have specific security requirements?
