The Encryption Key Wizard

You can do all of your encryption tasks in the admin interface with a special utility called the Encryption Key Wizard. The main purpose of the Encryption Key Wizard is to

  • Enable order encryption in your store by creating an encryption key.
  • Create new encryption keys. PCI standards require you to create a new encryption key every 365 days.
  • Remove payment information from orders (Archiving)

Note that the screens in the Encryption Key Wizard will be slightly different, depending on whether you have existing orders with credit card data in them.

  • You don't have an encryption key
  • You have an encryption key, but you don't have any orders with credit card data.

The wizard will only prompt you to create a new encryption key.

  • You don't have an encryption key.
  • You have an encryption key, and you have at least one order with credit card data.
  • The wizard will prompt you to create a new encryption key and then allow you to:

  • Migrate orders (encrypt them), and/or
  • Archive orders (strip payment info)
