Tokenization is a technique used to protect the cardholder’s payment data from prying eyes. In addition, merchants should never store payment card data unless required to do so. Going through the reports about the data security breaches, we can say that the future of tokenization looks bright ahead.
What is Tokenization?
Tokenization is a highly secure method of replacing 16-digit credit card number with a unique code. This unique code is nothing but a token. In tokenization, there is a random generation of the token. Moreover, it reduces the chances of data breaches. Before the introduction of tokenization technique, Encryption was widely used to protect customer’s data. Unlike encryption, Tokenization does not use a mathematical rule for token creation.
1- The customer enters his or her credit card information.
2- Tokenization system receives the credit card number.
3- The tokenization system generates a token.
4- The tokenization set-up sends the randomly generated token number to your site.
5- Finally, you can make payments with a token. Now, the cardholder’s data is safe with tokenization.
