Final eb ch 09 encryption and e payments modes (2)

  1. 1. Encryption And E-Payments Modes Chapter-9
  2. 2. What is encryption?  A process that converts original information, also called plain text into a difficult-to-interpret form called ciphertext.  Done by using an encryption algorithm, a formula used to turn plain text into ciphertext.  Two types: Asymmetric and Symmetric
  3. 3. Asymmetric Encryption
  4. 4. Symmetric Encryption
  5. 5. Which one is better?  Although, symmetric encryption is fast, it is not as safe as asymmetric encryption because someone could “steal” the key and decode the messages. But because of its speed, it's commonly used for ecommerce transactions.  Asymmetric encryption is more complex--and more secure. Asymmetric encryption's added safety comes at a price: More computation is required, so the process takes longer.
  6. 6. Who’s using encryption?  If you use a computer and the internet, you’re using encryption!  Enables all organizations regardless of their size, to be both user-and-IT friendly.
  7. 7. Why use encryption?  Authentication  Protects  personal data such as passwords. Privacy  Provides  for confidentiality of private information. Integrity  Ensures  that a document or file has not been altered. Accountability  Prevents denial or plagiarism.
  8. 8. How do you manage encryption?  Make sure the encryption system has a complete key management application.  This will help manage and protect the data and keys, and help you safely match encrypted data with the right key.
  9. 9. Examples of Encryption  Web browser encryption  Email encryption  Hard drive encryption  Operating system protection
  10. 10. A few vendors and their product coverage  Blackberry  System,  software, hardware, and service. Global Technologies Group, Inc. (GTGI)  Software  Hewlett-Packard Company  System,  and hardware. software, hardware, and service. Intellect Security Ltd.  Software
  11. 11. Electronic Payments Modes
  12. 12. Electronic Payment  Electronic payment is a payment that is transmitted electronically including telephone lines and Internet
  13. 13. Electronic Payment Options   Credit Cards: 90% of the transactions are made by credit cards. E-checks: encrypted version of paper checks. Echeck Electronic funds transfer or EFT refers to the computer-based systems used to perform financial transactions electronically.
  14. 14. Electronic Payment Options     E-Cash/Electronic money It is money that is exchanged electronically. This involves the use of computer networks, the internet and digital stored value systems. Bank deposits, electronic funds transfer (EFT), direct deposit, payment processors and digital currencies such as bit-coin are all examples of electronic money.
  15. 15. Electronic Payment Issues Electronic payment methods should lower cost  Stealing of credit card number can be an issue  Consumer privacy could be a problem 
  16. 16. A credit card payment transaction
  17. 17. An electronic cash payment transaction

The more payments they can process electronically, the less they spend on paper and postage. - 24/7 online bill payment. Most of these services are free to bank customers and coordinate easily with personal software programs such as Quicken or MS Money
  20. 20. Concerns About Electronic Payment The privacy and the possibility of identity theft.  Solutions  - Using virus protection software and a firewall on your computer. -You should also make sure that you send your credit card information over a secure server. Your Internet browser will notify you when a server is secure by showing a lock or key icon. In addition, the URL on a secure site is usually designated by the prefix "https" instead of "http." Retailers do their part by using data encryption, which codes your information in such a way that only the key holder can decode it.
  21. 21. Authentication          Authentication, is used to verify that the information comes from a trusted source There are several ways to authenticate a person or information on a computer; -password -pass card -digital signature -Fingerprint scan -Retina scan -face scan -Voice identification
  22. 22.
