I need to validate and store credit card information (name, card number, expiration date, CVC) for retrieval at a later date. Once retrieved, the data will be used for manual processing on a separate system.
I have been told countless times that storing credit card data in a MySQL database is a terrible idea, even if encrypted in PCI compliant secure servers.
What service in 2022 can I use that has something like an API, and with which I can securely store and retrieve credit card info? Validating it before storing it would be awesome, but I can do that in an extra step if necessary.
