A drop-in replacement for mysqldump that optionally sanitizes DB fields for better GDPR conformity.

It is based on the ifsnop/mysqldump-php library, and can in principle dump any database that PDO supports.

How to use

There are presently two ways of manipulating data, the first is by manipulating the actual SQL queries that are run on the server (given by the gdpr-expressions path), and the second is by replacing column output before the dump is generated (given by the gdpr-replacements option).

$ ../vendor/bin/mysqldump drupal --host=mariadb --user=drupal --password=xxxxxxxx users_field_data --gdpr-expressions='{"users_field_data":{"name":"uid","mail":"uid","pass":"\"\""}}' --debug-sql
...
--
-- Dumping data for table `users_field_data`
--

/* SELECT `uid`,`langcode`,`preferred_langcode`,`preferred_admin_langcode`,uid as name,"" as pass,uid as mail,`timezone`,`status`,`created`,`changed`,`access`,`login`,uid as init,`default_langcode` FROM `users_field_data` */

INSERT INTO `users_field_data` VALUES (0,'en','en',NULL,'0','','0','',0,1523397207,1523397207,0,0,'0',1);
INSERT INTO `users_field_data` VALUES (1,'en','en',NULL,'1','','1','UTC',1,1523397207,1523397207,0,0,'1',1);

The fields to obfuscate are passed via a --gdpr-expressions parameter. Note that we use uid expression to satisfy unique keys.

The same without obfuscation:

$ ../vendor/bin/mysqldump drupal --host=mariadb --user=drupal --password=xxxxxxxx users_field_data --debug-sql
...
--
-- Dumping data for table `users_field_data`
--

/* SELECT `uid`,`langcode`,`preferred_langcode`,`preferred_admin_langcode`,`name`,`pass`,`mail`,`timezone`,`status`,`created`,`changed`,`access`,`login`,`init`,`default_langcode` FROM `users_field_data` */

INSERT INTO `users_field_data` VALUES (0,'en','en',NULL,'',NULL,NULL,'',0,1523397207,1523397207,0,0,NULL,1);
INSERT INTO `users_field_data` VALUES (1,'en','en',NULL,'admin','$S$Eb6kZl.9OFjoa69Z05pzUhaZJ6vpKaGZVpnjAxxLJ7ip0zOwanEV','admin@example.com','UTC',1,1523397207,1523397207,0,0,'admin@example.com',1);

Using gdpr-replacements

This uses Faker for most of the column sanitization.

Presently, the tool searches for the "gdpr-replacements" option, either passed as a command line argument, or as part of a MySql options file.

The "gdpr-replacements" option expects a JSON string with the following format

{"tableName" : {"columnName1": {"formatter": "formatterType", ...}, {"columnName2": {"formatter": "formatterType"}, ...}, ...}

Where formatterType is one of the following

  • name - generates a name
  • phoneNumber - generates a phone number
  • username - generates a random user name
  • password - generates a random password
  • email - generates a random email address
  • date - generates a date
  • longText - generates a sentence
  • number - generates a number
  • randomText - generates a sentence
  • text - generates a paragraph
  • uri - generates a URI
  • clear - generates an empty string

This will replace the given column's value with Faker output.

Use with drush

As this mimicks mysqldump, it can be use with drush, backup_migrate and any tool that uses mysqldump. Drush example:

$ export PATH=/var/www/html/vendor/bin:$PATH
$ which mysqldump
/var/www/html/vendor/bin/mysqldump
$ drush sql-dump --tables-list=users_field_data --extra-dump=$'--gdpr-expressions=\'{"users_field_data":{"name":"uid","mail":"uid","init":"uid","pass":"\\"\\""}}\' --debug-sql'

MySqlOptions file

You are able to have your gdpr-expressions/replacement options set in a mysql options file file. It is to appear under the [mysqldump] section.

So, for example, you might have /etc/my.cnf with the following content

[mysqldump]
gdpr-replacements='{"fakertest":{"name": {"formatter":"name"}, "telephone": {"formatter":"phoneNumber"}}}'

Status and further development

Currently this is a proof of concept to spark a community process. Especially the --gdpr-expressions option is neither handy to write for humans, nor does it scale well. Here we might need better options.
