Securing Credit Card Data through CryptoHeaven?

  1. Minnie

    There's a number of posts talking about getting secure data like credit card info. Not knowing PHP programming, I've been seeking a way to get data delivered safely end to end to the business computer.

    One way that should seemingly work I discovered is the secure email system from Cryptoheaven, which allows you to add some html to the post method of a form to have it sent out securely.

    So, my question is would this work and if so how would the code snippet they provide be applied?

    Using CryptoHeaven Web Forms

    Your existing form has a <FORM> tag that looks similar to this:


    Replace this entire tag with this one:

    <FORM METHOD=POST ACTION="" ENCTYPE="multipart/form-data">

    Add this line between the <FORM> and </FORM> tags. Replace the 2500000 number with your CryptoHeaven numeric ID.

    <INPUT TYPE="hidden" name="CH_uId" value="2500000">

    Optional parameters:

    <input type="hidden" name="CH_successPage" value="">
    <input type="hidden" name="CH_errorPage" value="">
    <input type="hidden" name="CH_fromName" value="CryptoHeaven Secure Form">
    <input type="hidden" name="CH_fromEmail" value="">
    <input type="hidden" name="CH_subject" value="CryptoHeaven Secure Form">

    Thanks, as always.

    Or a similar one using a competing product Hushmail...

    Where you insert...

    <form method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data" action=" user)">

  3. I have no first hand experience integrating these services. However, you can use the gform_form_tag to completely change the form tag and send the data wherever you want.

    I got this working with Hushmail, at least to send it, with the following added to the theme-child's 'functions.php' file:

    <form method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data"
    target="gform_ajax_frame_1" id="gform_1"

    But, the button click never got lost in a loop and the result of the form never landed on the success page.

    The form doesn't show field names, but only labels like:


    input_96_3: Joe

    input_96_6: Jones

    Can these be customized and CSS added to style the look of the received email?

    Also, there is no email notification to the customer that the order will be processed. Is there a way for that to get out?

    I am sorry, I don't understand. It looks like you were originally talking about securing data, and now you are discussing hushmail. Are the two connected? Did you change the form submission based on the hook that was mentioned? Can you give me more information about what you are experiencing and what you expect to have happen?
