Security Requirements?

Where is a webpage listing all the security requirements I need for a server?

 

I'm just starting out running an online shop and I am trying to choose between running my own server or using a service from an online platform where everything is done for you.  So I want to know how difficult it is to run my own server and I need to know what security I need to setup, then I'll decide which way approach to take.

 

So is there a web page on the Visa site listing all the technical details I need to do to run my own server before I can do Visa transactions?

Re: Security Requirements?

Hey @Matthew,

 

Can you please let us know the API that you are interested in using for your project? You can take a look at our website for specific APIs relevant to your business case.
https://developer.visa.com/ 
https://developer.visa.com/apibrowser 

 

If your API uses X-Pay-Token, you will need to be able to set up X-Pay-Token on the code running on your server to connect to Visa's APIs.
 
Here's the X-Pay-Token link - https://developer.visa.com/pages/working-with-visa-apis/x-pay-token

 

If your API uses Two-Way SSL, then you'll need to be able to set up Two-Way SSL on the code running on your server to connect to Visa's APIs.
 
Here's the Two-Way SSL link - https://developer.visa.com/pages/working-with-visa-apis/two-way-ssl
