Prevent message data from appearing in BIP message

Some BIP messages, such as 5503, can contain message data. This data can contain sensitive information and may end up in logs. In order to be PCI compliant, this must be prevented. See the PMR for more information and L3 recommendation for an RFE.

    RFE Review. As part of our standard process for reviewing RFEs we have recently discussed this RFE and wish to note that it remains of long term interest to us. It is regrettable that we have not yet managed to prioritize this requirement for immediate action, but we will continue to monitor for popularity and keep it in mind for future plans. At the stage of implementation it is likely we would choose to encrypt the whole log entry rather than just particular inserts. Status is maintained as Uncommitted Candidate.

    Thank you for raising this RFE. We share your view that providing a means of configuring BIP message outputs to be censored in order to meet PCI requirements would be a good addition to the IIB product. As you know from private discussions which we've had on this topic through our Beta program, we are keen to meet this requirement in a future release, so thanks for taking the time to get this RFE registered to help us gather further evidence of wider support from our user-base. Status of this RFE is updates to Uncommitted Candidate.
