Frequently Asked Questions

Question: Is this website secure?
Answer: Yes, security is provided by e-Sec Payments Gateway. The Payment Gateway implements need-to-know security for credit card payments over the Internet. Need-to-know security in this case means that the only party who sees a consumer's credit card is the bank, not the merchant and not the service provider. (Note that the merchant only needs to know that the transaction has been authorised, it doesn't need to know credit card numbers.)

The Payment Gateway ensures that this confidential information remains encrypted all the way to the banking network. To enforce this unique security system, the Payment Gateway employs internationally recognised encryption algorithms such as RSA(r), RC4(r) and SHA. The security of the software is not compromised by U.S. export legislation. Key lengths are variable and can be periodically increased to keep pace with the ever-declining cost of computing power.

In its current state, the Payment Gateway accepts variable length RSA keys and uses 128-bit RC4 keys.
