Thales communications security and Miura Systems partner-launched an integrated m-payment solution for merchants to adopt mobile POS systems that fully support PIN based transactions and EMV chip cards. Smaller merchants can now take advantage of the inherent security qualities of these technologies to reduce fraud and simplify compliance, they also qualify for reduced interchange fees which directly benefits their bottom line. PIN based transactions and EMV cards requires a level of security that has (largely) prevented their use in the context of mobile payments since smartphones cannot be certified to the appropriate standards (PCI PTS). Any payment system relies on end-to-end protection of the transaction from the customer terminal right through to the payment processing infrastructure. Thales has worked with Miura to protect that back-end infrastructure via interoperability with the Thales payShield 9000 hardware security module (HSM).

Foregenix Qualified Security Assessor published its white paper outlining the benefits of End-to-End Encryption (E2EE or Point to Point Encryption) for magnetic stripe card transactions and how this can be achieved with CreditCall’s CardEase Ultra service. In it are highlights on how E2EE combats cardholder data theft, where sensitive card information is compromised by computer hackers once the data enters the POS system or while cardholder data is in transit on a Merchant’s network. Moreover, its “CardEase Ultra” uses an encrypting mag-stripe reader to strongly encrypt the card data as soon as it’s read from the magnetic stripe and provides secure card tokenisation allowing future transactions, full or partial refunds without the card needing to be present.

CreditCall and MagTek partnered to issue the “Magnesafe” card reader, on the bank-independent “CardEase” Ultra platform. The “CardEase Ultra” End-to-End Encryption (E2EE) solution guarantees fraud protection from the point of card acceptance until settlement. The E2EE simplifies PA-DSS compliance for terminal manufacturers, allowing merchant users to take significant segments of their networks outside the scope of PCI DSS, reducing both infrastructure complexity and compliance costs. It also provides secure card tokenisation allowing future transactions or refunds without the card needing to be present.
CreditCall has launched its “CardEase Ultra” End-to-End Encryption (E2EE) solution providing fraud protection from the point of card acceptance all the way to settlement. This is designed to reduce complexity, time and cost for merchants to maintain or achieve their PCI DSS Compliance while making card payments more secure since the data does not exist in plaintext form.
CreditCall is developing a payment app called “CardEase Mobile” secured Chip & PIN (EMV) or magnetic-stripe transactions to take place on BlackBerry and other smartphones, becoming available in fall 2010. The card read and the userâs PIN entered on a separate Bluetooth-linked PIN Pad that can be paired to the smartphone. The data is encrypted while in transit and on a smartphone, then sent over a wireless network to authorize the transaction. A transaction receipt can then be sent to the customer by email, SMS or in paper format from an optional printer.
CreditCall and interactive TV software development specialist, ANT, have teamed to develop a payment system that will allow consumers to purchase services using their
credit or debit card, directly from an on-screen menu from their satellite, cable or broadband decoder box. The payment system employs CreditCall’s “CardEase” transaction technology,
which securely processes payment from the user’s card. ANT’s “Fresco” browser for TV is being integrated with “CardEase” to render an intuitive user interface, enabling the consumer to operate the payment system via their TV screen and remote control. Communications with the payment host will be via the back channel fitted to the cable or broadband decoder box, or by normal telephone line in the case of satellite. The Creditcall and ANT technology partnership will also allow satellite, cable and IPTV companies to reduce the number of failed subscriptions through the convenience of an “on-box” payment method, and at the same time reduce the costs of call centers and traditional payment methods.
