Mask & unmask data in journal

We have custom Windows equipment that generates journals that unfortunately
contains credit card numbers (which PCI-DSS would not allow) but our business
people needs these info.

At Windows OS level, is there any free tools or ways to mask these card info in
the journal (treat these journal files as 'locked' just like event viewer logs) &
when the  authorized needs it, it will be 'unmasked' to them.

Any other solutions are most welcome

Correction:
>when the  authorized needs it, it will be 'unmasked' to them.
when the  authorized staff needs it, it will be 'unmasked' to him/her.

Yes, it's a PCI-DSS compliance related : think
ATM card# is out of PCI-DSS scope but
PAN & credit card#  is in scope & is a concern.

Wow, not any masking algorithm is acceptable:
guess need to encrypt & encryption password
known to authorized staff only?
