Axon Data Protection Module 4.1

In event sourcing, the list of past events is (at least conceptually) immutable. This also implies that data cannot be deleted from it. The Axon Data Protection Module uses cryptography on protected data, without altering the data itself, allowing Event Streams to remain intact.

AxonIQ has originally created a GDPR Module which uses cryptographic erasure to reconcile event sourcing with article 17’s right to erasure. With Axon 4.1 release we announced that we’ve changed the name of GDPR Module to Axon Data Protection 4.1

Why the change? The simple reason is that more than 50% of our customers use the module for reasons other than GDPR. The name change is part of a product transformation aiming to simplify things and is aligned with 4.1 release.

In this webinar, you will hear about the concepts of encryption and the features of the Axon Data Protection Module 4.1.

Steven van Beelen will explain about:

  • Concepts and design goals of the Axon Data Protection Module
  • Encryption algorithm
  • Important features in the latest version 4.1, including the HashiCorp Vault integration
  • Practical use of the Axon Data Protection Module to meet the GDPR requirements

Lead developer Axon Framework AxonIQ

Steven van Beelen is a Lead developer at AxonIQ with a keen interest in new and exciting technologies and methodologies.

The last couple of years this interest has chiefly been fulfilled by the Axon Framework and how it approaches software architecture. This eventually led him to become a part of the AxonIQ team. There, he currently helps small and large clients build Axon applications, gives training in it, develops the framework and is overall active in the Axon community. Always keen to learn and improve himself in the software space, he reads up on more abstract concepts like domain driven design, messaging patterns and event sourcing. He also keeps himself up to date with more concrete topics like new frameworks and languages to improve his skill as a developer.
