Secure Payment at Help2Protect

In order to offer you the optimal security, Help2Protect chose Stripe for online payment.

All payments are made through debit/credit card through the Stripe platform.

HTTPS for secure connections

Stripe forces HTTPS for all services using TLS (SSL), including our public website and the Dashboard.

  • Stripe.js is served only over TLS
  • Stripe’s official libraries connect to Stripe’s servers over TLS and verify TLS certificates on each connection

We regularly audit the details of our implementation, including the certificates we serve, the certificate authorities we use, and the ciphers we support. We use HSTS to ensure that browsers interact with Stripe only over HTTPS. Stripe is also on the HSTS preloaded lists for both Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.

Encryption of sensitive data and communication

All card numbers are encrypted at rest with AES-256. Decryption keys are stored on separate machines. None of Stripe’s internal servers and daemons can obtain plaintext card numbers but can request that cards are sent to a service provider on a static allowlist. Stripe’s infrastructure for storing, decrypting, and transmitting card numbers runs in a separate hosting environment, and doesn’t share any credentials with Stripe’s primary services (API, website, and so on).

Vulnerability disclosure and reward program

Stripe maintains a public bug bounty program, with the assistance of HackerOne. Valid and in-scope reports might be eligible for a payment.

By submitting a security bug or vulnerability to Stripe through HackerOne, you acknowledge that you have read and agreed to the Program Terms and Conditions set forth below. By providing a submission, you agree that you may not publicly disclose your findings or the contents of your submission to any third parties without Stripe’s prior written approval.
