While designing an e-commerce website there are many types of security issues which have to be well planned and executed or implemented on the website. What are these? Let me briefly list out.
- SSL (secure socket layers) encryption
- Multiple administrators login
- IP (Internet Protocol) blocking
- Access history (administrator)
- Crash proof shopping cart
- Secured database
- Access areas for “members only”
- Forms submission with “Captcha” validation
On the website one must make sure that all credit card transactions are done using 128 bit SSL encryption. One must also make sure that only the last four digits of credit card gets displayed. SSL uses public-key encryption to exchange a session key between the client and server. Different session keys should be used for different transactions which will make decrypting impossible for any one.
Another security related feature is the possibility of live updation of the website which may be done frequently on an e-commerce website. All existing data must be kept intact and nothing should be lost when upgrading the e-commerce website.
