When it comes to purchasing something, anything online, the security question towers above everything else. We do not take our store’s overall cyber security and particularly the billing process security lightly. We can assure you that all of your shopping here will be a fun and safe experience through Stripe, of which the security details are outlined on the stripe.com website and summarized below:
Security at Stripe
Stripe has been audited by a PCI-certified auditor and is certified to PCI Service Provider Level 1. This is the most stringent level of certification available in the payments industry. To accomplish this, Stripe makes use of best-in-class security tools and practices to maintain a high level of security.
HTTPS and HSTS for secure connections
Stripe forces HTTPS for all services using TLS (SSL).
- Stripe.js is served only over TLS
- Stripe’s official libraries connect to Stripe’s servers over TLS and verify TLS certificates on each connection
Stripe regularly audit the details of our implementation: the certificates it serves, the certificate authorities it uses, and the ciphers it supports. Stripe uses HSTS to ensure browsers interact with Stripe only over HTTPS. Stripe is also on the HSTS preloaded lists for both Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.
Encryption of sensitive data and communication
All card numbers are encrypted at rest with AES-256. Decryption keys are stored on separate machines. None of Stripe’s internal servers and daemons are able to obtain plaintext card numbers; instead, they can just request that cards be sent to a service provider on a static whitelist. Stripe’s infrastructure for storing, decrypting, and transmitting card numbers runs in separate hosting infrastructure, and doesn’t share any credentials with Stripe’s primary services (API, website, etc.)
