AuricVault® service

The problem the AuricVault® service solves: Protecting sensitive data assets

Try the evaluation kit, reduce your data security concerns in minutes!


The AuricVault®service is a PCI and HIPAA compliant data storage service that associates tokens with secure encrypted data.

2 Easy Steps to Implementation

Go to Step 1



Tokenization is a proven way to secure and protect information, assets such as credit cards, social security numbers, and passwords. A tokenization service encrypts the data it receives and then stores the encrypted data along with a random set of characters (the token). The service returns the token to you, so the token can be stored in place of the sensitive information in your business environment. The token has no value to any criminal who might access it in your environment.

The AuricVault®tokenization service is a STaaS/DP (storage-as-a-service used for data protection).

The AuricVault®tokenization service is accessed through the AuricVault®Application Program Interface (API). If you do not have in-house web developers, Auric Systems International can provide custom development services, or contact information of software development firms familiar with the AuricVault®tokenization service. Check the box indicating development services are needed during step 1 sign up to get an evaluation kit.

“ Even when physical security is breached, firewalls are penetrated, tripwires are evaded and software-based security is circumvented, the combination of tokenization and cryptography provides a robust defense that can provide last-ditch salvation.”

– IBM Systems Magazine ©2014 MSP Communications, Inc.

Customer Feedback on  getting the 1st token back once the evaluation kit is received : As little as 15 minutes!

The AuricVault®service is PCI and HIPAA compliant data storage that associates tokens with secure encrypted data. Any Personally Identifiable Information can also be secured this way. 

The encrypted data can be:

  • Stored
  • Retrieved
  • Updated
  • Deleted.

A permissions system provides complete and secure controlled sharing of any sensitive information with third parties while tracking access to the data by user and date/time.

Retention policies allow automatic aging-out of data when it is no longer being accessed.

The AuricVault® service is an ideal storage solution for any sort of sensitive data.

Tokenization & Data Storage Service for PCI and HIPAA Compliance

While tokenization is a term commonly associated with credit card storage and security, it is not yet as popular in the HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) compliance arena. However, considering the vast number of recent healthcare breaches, its time has come. Protecting HIPAA data is actually more complicated than with PCI data. Whereas with PCI the only data asset that needs to be protected is the actual credit card number, HIPAA information includes many more variables such as:

  • Names
  • Addresses
  • License/certificate numbers
  • Vehicle identifiers & serial numbers
  • Birth dates
  • Social Security Numbers
  • Policy Numbers
  • Tax IDs

Multiple parties often have access to this data, however, there may be different levels of access required for each. With tokenization, sensitive data assets can be stored separately, and retrieved by different levels of access. This way, individuals are only able to retrieve certain types of data.

Personally Identifiable Information (PII) assets, such as birth information, social security numbers, financial records, security clearance, can also be protected, allowing organizations to improve security of personnel and/or client information.

Why The AuricVault® Tokenization Service?

Tokenization is the most effective way of minimizing your PCI compliance footprint.

The AuricVault®service interoperates with many different applications, programming languages, and processing services. It makes tokenized credit card storage affordable, even when your business needs a custom solution.

 Payments Passthrough

The AuricVault® service payments passthrough option provides the ability to pass payment transactions through the AuricVault® service to any of the AuricVault® service supported payment gateways.

The AuricVault® service payments passthrough option makes it easy for a business to tokenize credit cards, reduce PCI Compliance requirements and make payments to leading payment processors. The token can be used in place of the credit card in a business environment and when needed be sent to a supported payment processor through the AuricVault® service. This is useful for recurring transactions and when communicating transactions to multiple payment processors.

The AuricVault® payments passthrough service is designed as a pass-through service that converts a generic API into payment processor specific transactions. In addition to returning generic, processor-neutral responses, the AuricVault® payments service also returns detailed information returned by each payment processor. This is vital for businesses that are looking to take full advantage of services provided by each payment processor. This philosophy is an outgrowth of our 20 years of building server-side applications.

One unique feature of the AuricVault® payments service is the ability to see what data was sent to/received from the payment processor. This data (properly sanitized for PCI compliance before being returned) simplifies any support discussion you may have directly with your payment processor.

Step 1

Sign up and receive your free 90 day evaluation kit.

The 90 day evaluation kit includes access to the latest
  • API
  • Sample Code
  • Evaluation / Sandbox Credentials
  • AuricVault Evaluation / Sandbox URLs
Evaluation credentials functionality are pre-defined:
  • Encrypt / Tokenize & Decrypt / Detokenize
  • Two segments
  • Two Retention periods (forever and “Long year”, which is 14 Months)
When you’re comfortable with the AuricVault® API, you’re ready for Step 2.
Step 2  defines specific credential functionality.
For example, a credential or multiple credentials can be defined to:
  • Encrypt / Tokenize & Decrypt  /Detokenize
  • Encrypt / Tokenize Only
  • Detokenize / Decrypt Only
  • Segments (randomly-defined)
  • Retention Policies
Segments – Information segmentation allows you to divide your information into different categories (segments). The AuricVault® service is able to tokenize a wide range of data with different levels of sensitivity. See the AuricVault® API for more details about segmentation.
Retention – The AuricVault® service supports multiple retention policies. This is necessary because retention policies for credit card numbers will be different than the retention policy for a taxpayer identification or phone number. The AuricVault® API provides the ability to delete tokens. See the AuricVault® API for more information on retention policies

Step 2 Define Staging & Production Credentials

Complete Step 2 to receive staging and production credentials. Define the specific requirements of your AuricVault® staging & production credentials In step 2. Auric builds the set of staging credentials that will match your eventual production credentials when you’ve completed and submitted your requirements. Staging credentials can be tweaked, updated or redefined during your staging process to assure the production credentials are defined to your specific requirements. Staging & production credentials are delivered promptly.
