P2PE, or point-to-point encryption, is a security standard developed by the Payment Card Industry (PCI) to ensure that payment card data is encrypted from the start to the finish of a transaction.

Transport layer encryption, also known as transport layer security (TLS), encrypts your messages as they are transmitted to the servers of the application you use and from the application's servers to the recipient.
Tokenization is the process of replacing sensitive data, in the case of card payments, with a different data called "token" within a specific algorithm, which cannot be used as the original in case of capture.
