PCI Security - End-to-End Tokenized Encryption

EPX now extends data protection to what I call the 'first inch" of a transaction, i.e., from the plastic to the browser/EPX hosted application. They do that by integrating an encrypting card reader with their BuyerWall solution so that it holds the decryption keys out of the merchant's custody and in a secure system. The PAN data is not decrypted until it is needed for submission directly to the authorization networks, and is never at the merchant anywhere in plain text. Text posted on [kiosk industry group]
