ClientExec tries very hard to secure your customer's information and reduce the risk of compromising that information.
Credit card information is encrypted within ClientExec once a customer enters their credit card information. ClientExec requires that you further encrypt this credit card information by adding a string word, called a passphrase, that is not stored anywhere on the server of database.
Each time a customer enters their credit card number, you must "validate" the number using a passphrase. The credit card number is encrypted using the passphrase and can not be decrypted unless the passphrase is provided.Â The first time you "validate" a credit card your passphrase is set.
Warning: The passphrase can not be retrieved if forgotten, you will be able to recreate a passphrase but all credit cards will have to be reentered.
When processing credit card based invoices you will require this passphrase.
