In general, a whitelist (also: positive list) refers to a summary of elements that are trustworthy in the opinion of the author.

In the area of fraud prevention, this is usually a collection of addresses, telephone numbers, IP addresses, email addresses and/or credit cards that are associated with a “good” customer.

By creating such a list, you can arrange for all orders containing data from the whitelist to be automatically confirmed – with the aim of reducing the processing time of your transactions. The risk of doing this, however, is that if credit card or other data on the whitelist is stolen, a fraudster’s order with such a credit card would be confirmed directly without you being able to check it for fraud.
