Encrypted payment card numbers


Hello. I have a question about implementating database encryption for stored credit card numbers in R3 (Rel. 45B).

We have a consultant coming in the next week to help with the config. If I am understanding the flow, the encryption and decryption can be done via function calls at different times (I am assuming via user exits) in the processing.

My question is this:

If I encrypt the data, where is the encrypted value (which is much longer than the unencrypted credit card number field) to be stored? Is there a separate field used for storing the value? How long is that field?

Any feedback would be appreciated, as I am trying to do a little prep work before the consultant arrives.

Thank you.
