TXShop: Is TXShop secure?

Yes. TXShop requires you to login to the UT EID authentication system before allowing you into our store. In addition, the servers that run TXShop establish secure, heavily-encrypted connections with your Web browser using industry-standard secure socket layer (SSL) technology.

In addition, the credit card transaction processor for TXShop is provided by VeriSign, one of the most established and trusted names in Internet security. When you enter your credit card in TXShop, the number is encrypted and sent to VeriSign for authorization. At no time is it sent "in the clear" nor does SDS keep a copy of the number — making TXShop far more secure than using your credit card over the telephone.
