Secure Tenancy

Data Security / Sensitive Data (PII)

Honeycomb Secure Tenancy offers two options to address your security/compliance requirements while delivering access to the fine-grained observability that you need. Both options make use of the Honeycomb Secure Proxy running in your infrastructure. No plaintext data ever traverses Honeycomb’s infrastructure and the Honeycomb UI presents complete transparency to authorized members of your team. You have complete control of key rotation and reissuance down to the columnar level from within your own infrastructure.

  • With Event Encryption, your datasets are encrypted and the keys are stored in a database on the Secure Proxy running in your infrastructure. When an authorized user accesses Honeycomb, their web browser connects to the Secure Proxy directly and the data is unencrypted for them. Honeycomb never has access to the sensitive data in plaintext.
  • With Event Hashing, your datasets are hashed and the hash mappings are stored in a database on the Secure Proxy running in your infrastructure. When an authorized user accesses Honeycomb, their browser sends the hashed data to the Secure Proxy running in your environment and receives the un-hashed data back. Again, no plaintext data reaches Honeycomb.
