You tell me the credit card number you want to use for a transaction, I
encrypt it and compare it with the encrypted number on file. If it's the
same, then your card is valid. Unless you're the actual financial
institution that issued the credit card number there's no reason for you
to want to know what the (unencrypted) number actually is.

Then what's the point of recording it? If it can never be retrieved or
utilized?
