Hmm... this is an intresting solution if the credit card number never gets passed back to the webserver or the intermediate server.

Inital Process:

  1. CC number gets sent to DB server and gets returned a "key" to reference it for storage in the noncritical database.
  2. Uses said reference "key" to request that the card be processed.
  3. Intermediate server sends request to CC storage server who then processes the card and sends the request code to intermediate server who sends to webserver.

Rebill Process:

  1. Billing software sends "key" to intermediate server with a price to be billed.
  2. intermediate server relays request to database server who then processes card and sends response code back
  3. Intermediate server returns status code to webserver

I dont see any real problems in this process. Credit cards go in but they dont come out.

Intresting solution.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
