The major concern of online shoppers remains the security of e-commerce sites. While the number of consumers willing to provide credit card numbers or personal information online continues to rise, the lack of easily used security measures remains an impediment to more rapid growth in those numbers. Security requirements also extend to the necessity for nonrepudiation of transactions, so merchants can be assured that the online orders are valid and were made by the credit card owners.
