P2PE: Point-to-Point Encryption and Tokenization
The CCG encrypts data at the read head for both EMV chip and swiped cards. The data travels securely to the Gateway and is decrypted by the processor’s key. Tokenization replaces sensitive card data information with a data surrogate (also called masked data) so there is no relationship between tokens and real value. The result is no real card data on the POS, CCG or in the internal network.
