    As of HPCC Systems version 7.6.0, a new cryptographic module has been added to the ECL Standard Library. Within this module, there is an assortment of cryptographic features available to ECL developers to utilize in order to safeguard their sensitive data, using industry standard cryptographic algorithms. Features include digital hash algorithms, symmetric and asymmetric encryption and decryption, and digital signatures, all of which can be applied to individual columns within an ECL dataset.

    This ECL Tip spotlights the Enterprise Control Language (ECL) DISTRIBUTE function. The ECL DISTRIBUTE function redistributes data across all nodes in a cluster. Using the DISTRIBUTE function can help prevent “cluster skew”, by distributing data evenly across all nodes. This function can be used on Thor or the ROXIE cluster.
