The Key aspects to e-Payment security are:

- Strong Authentication Mechanism (Digital Certs,Smart Cards,PKI etc.) - Back-end Protocol validation with the financial institutions. - Transactions through encrypted channel (SSL). - The information regarding the Payment details should be stored as encrypted Data inside the Database. - Payment application should be built using strong cryptographic capability. - Support for e-Payment technologies/Protocols like SWIFTNet for IP, a messaging standard for exchanging mission-critical financial information and transactional data, which is likely to support additional financial network communications standards in the future.
