Either I don't understand your problem...
    or
you don't understand jethro's observation above.

If protecting the confidential, 10-digit numbers depends on your ability to "keep (a) secret" then the complexities of a rainbow table offer no advantage over a flat table of:

-------------------------------
|ID          | 10-digit number|
-------------------------------
|Abel, A     | 0123456789     |
-------------------------------
|etc,        | ad nauseum...  |
...

Either can be compromised, no matter how hard you try to "keep secret." In fact, discussions of the rainbow table often include a note that such entities are used to make recovering "secret" data easier:

  • Wikipedia: "A common application is to make attacks against hashed passwords feasible."
  • XXX (name deleted): "XXX is a Windows Password cracker based on Rainbow Tables"
  • Random discussion of web security: "Statistically, half of the key is found on average as soon as half the chain length has been reached" (caveats re complexity omitted)
