This gem adds Braintree's client-side encryption technology to spree's payment systems.
Obtain your client-side encryption key from Braintree and configure your it in the admin panel. (Configuration -> Payments)
The credit card number and the verification code will be encrypted. The real number and code with never hit your server. The encrypted value will pass through your sever, but you have no way of reading this value even you wanted to. Braintree uses an asymetic cypher. Only Braintree's servers can decrypt the number. You can read more on Braintree's blog and in their documentation
In most cases, this encryption is sufficient to obtain PCI compliance.
Add spree_gateway and spree_braintree_cse to your Gemfile and encryption will be enabled
gem 'spree_braintree_cse' gem 'spree_gateway', :git => "https://github.com/spree/spree_gateway.git", :branch => '1-3-stable'

config.assets.precompile += %w( store/braintree-1.1.1.min.js)
This gem depends on spree 1.3.x and spree_gateway
