Encryption Types

Simplify supports two types of encryption (starting with version 2.02.021):

  • The legacy Voltage encryption. Not eligible for PCI-validated P2PE.

  • Ingenico's On-Guard encryption. Eligible for PCI-validated P2PE.

The type of encryption used in an implementation can be displayed on the PIN Pad, as described in Chapter 1 under "Versioning". This information is also sent in API field 5004, which has been modified as follows:

Encryption Provider ID (field 5004)

The Elavon API uses field 5004 to indicate the encryption type as follows:

  • G2 = Voltage

  • OG = On-Guard (version 2.02.021 and higher)
