Security And Encryption
We use the secure Internet payment solution of WorldPay, the globally acknowledged and trusted leader in secure, multilingual and multi-currency Internet payment solutions. WorldPay enables over 15,000 suppliers in 115 countries to sell to shoppers around the globe.
How secure is WorldPay?
WorldPay uses state of the art security tools and techniques, both proprietary and unique, to ensure that you are protected against what is nowadays a virtually non-existent risk. Their systems also have inbuilt system redundancy and fault tolerance, to provide you with a virtually uninterrupted service 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
How does WorldPay security work?
Using industry standard SSL, Thawte and RBS WorldPay unique encryption systems, when you fill in the payment form and click the submit button, your details are not sent straight away. What actually happens is that a secure link is set up between your browser and WorldPay. Data security between your browser and WorldPay is protected by a security protocol called Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). SSL provides data encryption, server authentication, and message integrity for a TCP/IP connection. In addition, SSL provides a security “handshake” that is used to initiate the connection.
What level of encryption is used on the WorldPay server?
WorldPay use Thawte 2048 bit encryption systems. At the browser 128 Bit SSL is used.
How do I know if security is operating? Where is the security icon?
One you get to our payment page, your internet session is encrypted because your security-enabled browser is connected to RBS WorldPay’s web site using the Secure Hypertext Transport Protocol.
Our payment page uses secure mode, and your browser will display a or security icon (or Netscape might show the “broken key” icon). Security is fully enabled and fully functioning. You can verify this by opening the payment part of the page in its own browser window. You will also see the “https://” secure protocol prefix in the URL string. URL strings beginning with “https://” instead of the usual “http://” indicate that the secure protocol is in effect.
You can also “right click” on the payment part of the screen that is secure. In Explorer, click on properties to see if the file is encrypted. On Netscape, click on page information or view frame information to do the same. You will see the Connection of something like “SSL 3.0, RC4 with 128 bit encryption (High); RSA with 1024 bit exchange” and the URL of “http://www.worldpay.com/support/index.php?page=security&c=SI”. URL strings beginning with “https://” instead of the usual “http://” indicate that the secure protocol is in effect.
Browsers that do not support SSL will be unable to access the WorldPay secure site.
