The technological solution required to secure and securely transmit sales data, is a tamper-proof fully integrated fiscal module with a mechanical seal, here called the AEE; either integrated in an Electronic Cash Register or an a printer to a PC-based POS system. The AEE has to undergo a specific device certification before the integration and co-production of the ECR or the POS-printer. Each connected cash register with AEE has an individual Device Certificate. No “middle-ware” is permitted in the cash register.
