in reply to Encrypting Credit card numbers
Im leaning twords the PGP encrpytion but the annoyance of
having to manually do the recurring billing may not make
it fly with the boss.
Yes, and when the credit card numbers get stolen,
and you lose all of your existing customers, and get
bad publicity to keep away all new ones, and the business
shuts down, *that's* annoying. This is one area where
it should be fairly easy to explain to the PHB that
the price of security is definitely worth the cost.
(three-machine, encrypted, at the least).
