Best Practices for Handling Duplicate Elements in Python Lists

Here are three awesome ways that you can use to remove duplicates in a list. These are helpful in resolving your data analytics solutions.  01. Using a Set Convert the list into a set , which automatically removes duplicates due to its unique element nature, and then convert the set back to a list. Solution: original_list = [2, 4, 6, 2, 8, 6, 10] unique_list = list(set(original_list)) 02. Using a Loop Iterate through the original list and append elements to a new list only if they haven't been added before. Solution: original_list = [2, 4, 6, 2, 8, 6, 10] unique_list = [] for item in original_list:     if item not in unique_list:         unique_list.append(item) 03. Using List Comprehension Create a new list using a list comprehension that includes only the elements not already present in the new list. Solution: original_list = [2, 4, 6, 2, 8, 6, 10] unique_list = [] [unique_list.append(item) for item in original_list if item not in unique_list] All three methods will result in uni

Tokenization: Vault based Vs Vault-less

Tokenization means generating a random number as an alternative for a Credit card (PAN) number. The random number can be Numeric/Non-numeric. It is in such a format that others cannot decode it.    *** The popular tokenization server is the Vault server. It generates a random Token for each transaction customer made at Merchant outlets. You can find how card numbers are masked with junk characters in the pdf provided. Here is the  Visa Security Tokenization Pdf. Two Top Tokenization Servers. Vault based server Vault-less server What is Tokenization? 1. Vault based server It stores a  Card number (PAN) and a Token  in a Table of the Teradata database as Key and value pairs. Due to the growing volume of transactions, the handling of the database became a big challenge for acquirers.  For each transaction, the vault server stores a record. That row contains both the Credit card number and its Token. When you use the same card multiple times, it generates different Tokens.  It is
