Encryption Keys / Integration with Credit Card Readers
We would like to integrate our application software with a Verifone platform that uses an MX 915 device for credit card processing. The device communicates via sockets and initial testing on that part of the process seems to work well. However, part of the full integration has to include "registering" the device with the POS and in order to do that, we have to generate an RSA 2048-bit key that we can send to this device and get back an encrypted key that we will store and send along with the transactions to process.
All of this with creating these keys is a bit over what we typically do and we have no experience with this at all.
Can anyone provide any ideas/suggestions/how to even get us started in the right direction?
Any help is appreciated.
RE: Encryption Keys / Integration with Credit Card Readers
You didn't mention the platform you're running on. We use several of the Chilkat ActiveX components on various versions of Windows (XP, Vista, 7, 8/8.1, Server 2003, 2008, 2008 R2 and 2012). They have an RSA component that may provide what you need.
