Real2Fake is a webapp, that allows government departments to wash their data of all identifiable information.

It does this by combinding the private information with a randomly generated salt, then transforming it into a hash, the hash is then used as a seed to generate a new fake identity for the record. This means that when looking at the data, the user can put a name and face to the data.

This easy process of washing the private information removes the excuse that the data is private, allowing all government departments to securely release all of their big data.
