    security advice.

    I'm working on an ecommerce site. Currently my checkout process in running in HTTPS mode. When the user submit their credit card info, I stored that in the session for next page. Is that safe or should i store it in a DB?

    Since I'm far from being done, if you have any security advise about building shopping cart let me know.


    thanks.

    You shouldn't store it at all. You should use a third party service that deals with that like 2checkout.com or paypal.com.
