E-payment is a type of an e-commerce transaction system to include electronic payment system for buying and selling products that are offered through the Internet. Commonly we mainly think of electronic payments as the referring to online transactions on the internet system, there are actually many forms of electronic payment systems. As technology system is developing, the devices and processes range to transact

Electronically continues to increase while the cash and check transactions percentage continues to decrease. In the US, for example, the bank checks have decreased from 85% of non-cash payments in 1979 to 59% in 2002 and the electronic payment system have grown up to 41%. The Internet system has become the active trade intermediary system within short span of time.

Also, Electronic payment may revolutionize retailing by making consumers to sit in their homes, offices and buy a different products and items from all over the global system. Many customers are still wary of conducting extensive business and transactions electronically even though it is secure. However, almost all the people will use the form of E-Commerce.

The customer needs to fill the credit or debit card details such as card number, card expiry date, CVV (Card Value Verification Code) in the payment gateway during the payment. These customer details can be misused by the employees of the third party website. Identifying theft and phishing are the common attacks on E-payment system. The attackers might create the credit or debit cards with the same data of another customer. In 2012 consumer information was misused for an average of 48 days as a result of identity theft. In 2nd quarter of 2013, Payment Service, Financial and Retail Service are the most targeted industrial sectors of phishing attacks. The  E-payment  security  protocols  such  as  Secure  Sockets  Layer  (SSL),  Secure Electronic Transaction (SET) Internet Open Trading Protocol (IOTP) provide the secure connection between the customer and merchant.

An online payment system allows a customer to make a payment to an online merchant or a service provider. Payment gateways, a channel between customers and payment processors, use various security tools to secure a customer’s payment information, usually debit or credit card information, during an online payment. However, the security provided by a payment gateway cannot completely protect a customer’s payment information when a merchant also has the ability to obtain the payment information in some form. Furthermore, not all merchants provide a secure payment environment to their customers and, despite having a standard payment policy, adhere to it. Consequently, this exposes a customer’s payment information to risks of being compromised or misused by merchants or stolen by hackers and spammers. In this thesis we propose a new approach to payment systems in which a customer’s payment information cannot be obtained by a merchant. A customer sends his payment information directly to a payment gateway and a payment gateway, upon verifying the transaction, sends a payment to the appropriate merchant. We use the Pedersen commitment scheme along with dual signatures to securely transfer funds to a merchant and protect a customer’s payment information from any Internet vulnerabilities.
