What is TSI 1.2 encryption?
TLS 1.2 encryption is the most refined version of secured communication between servers and web browsers available today. TradeGecko Payments operates on TLS 1.2 specifications to provide privacy and data integrity at the most advanced compatibility across browser versions and operating systems.
Transport Layer Security (TLS) refers to the process of securely transmitting data between the client—the app or browser that the customer is using—and the platform’s server. TLS attempts to accomplish the following:
• Encrypt and verify the integrity of traffic between the client and the platform’s server
• Verify that the client is communicating with the correct server. In practice, this usually means verifying that the owner of the domain and the owner of the server are the same entity. This helps prevent man-in-the-middle attacks. Without it, there’s no guarantee that traffic is encrypted to the right recipient.
Additionally, pages visibly served over HTTPS offers assurance that sensitive information is protected.
