Publication Date: Thursday, December 12, 2013
Document Format: PDF
This guide is designed for PCI DSS compliance officers, PCI Qualified Security Assessors, and other security professionals who are evaluating tokenization as a technology to reduce risk and minimize the cost of PCI DSS compliance. The guide describes how tokenization works in practice and how retailers and other businesses can deploy it to reduce both their risk of a cardholder data compromise and their cost of PCI compliance. It also addresses how tokens are constructed, how they differ from – but at the same time rely upon – strong encryption, and what are the tokenization deployment options. We conclude with a list of questions your organization should address before committing to any particular tokenization approach.
