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 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)
