Basis Theory Guides
Explore step-by-step guides to use our APIs and SDKs.
What are Tokens?
Tokens are the core of the Basis Theory platform, built to enable companies to remove the need to store sensitive data while granting the flexibility they need to grow and operate their business. Our tokens enable you to either own the encryption keys yourself, or pass raw data to our platform and we will handle keeping it safe for you.
What are Atomic Tokens?
Atomic Tokens enable your business to reduce its overall security and compliance footprint while also reducing the complexity of your application.
We are pleased to offer you this 10-step guide and sample application to demonstrate how to tokenize data using Basis Theory. This is an excellent way to quickly get started testing Basis Theory end to end.
Collect Atomic Cards
Basis Theory is here to make sure you can keep the lowest level of PCI compliance while retaining your ability to use your card data whenever and however you need to use it.
Our Elements have been built to act as normal input fields within your own application. We've taken care in building out the supported styles and needs of our customers. In this guide, we will walk you through a few of the different styles you can adjust.
Tokenize customer data
Basis Theory is intended to handle any payload of data you can serialize. To show the flexibility of our tokenization platform, the following guide will show you how you can easily tokenize your customer's PII (Personally Identifiable Information) data to keep it safe and secure.
Setup your first Reactor
Token Reactors are foundational to your ability to make your data more usable within your application.
Own Your Encryption Keys
This guide will show you how to start encrypting data within your applications, so only you can see the data.
