[ic] Dumb security question

I'd be interested in knowing how to set up a system like this, too.  I want to
be able to just send a confirmation email to my sales rep, who will then log
in via a secure connection to retrieve credit card details.

I know linux is supposed to be secure, and that any file with the permissions
set correctly should only be visible to authorised users, but would it not be
sensible to encrypt the data, just in case?  The data should also be deleted
automatically once the rep has retrieved it.

Does IC have this facility?  I would have thought it would be a fairly
standard setup.  Has anybody found a way to implement it?
