Abstract:Secure Electronic Transactions (SET) is a group of protocols designed for safe credit card payments over the World Wide Web. This IBM Redbooks publication explains the operation of the standard and illustrates it using IBM SET-compliant products, including the Net.Commerce server suite.
This book will help readers gain a theoretical understanding of what SET is and a practical knowledge of how it is implemented.
There are three parts to the book:
- Part I, "The Theory"
This section introduces the Secure Electronic Transactions (SET) environment and defines the roles of the users and providers that it serves. It also discusses other approaches to electronic payments including some product directions. The transaction flows in SET are then discussed in detail.
- Part II, "The Practice"
This section describes how the book project team implemented early versions of the IBM products that deliver the SET function. The text includes installation, customization and sample coding for programming exits.
- Part III, "Installing and Configuring Net.Commerce"
This section describes the installation and customization of the Net.Commerce server, which is a prerequisite for the SET payment processes described in Part 2.
Some knowledge of Internet security and Web server operations is assumed.
