Protecting smart card PIN
Digipass 870 provides the secure advantage of entering the PIN directly on the reader and not on the computer keyboard. Therefore, the PIN is never exposed over the PC platform. Similarly, smart card PIN changes can be securely performed using the Digipass 870 keyboard. Furthermore, a firewall mechanism protects the card from unauthorized access.
See it before you sign it
Digipass 870 has a full dot matrix display allowing extended data field validation on the Digipass screen. The large screen sets a new standard for e-signature offering high transaction security thanks to the “what you see is what you sign” (WYSIWYS) capability. With WYSIWYS, the user will validate the key data on his Digipass 870 display before he signs the transaction.
Reader signature and multi secure channel
Banks can verify that a transaction is approved and signed by his customer with a genuine card reader. When that same transaction is signed by an unauthorized reader, it is fully detectable. The end-user can trust the data he digitally signed since they were displayed in the secure environment of a trusted reader. During the transaction, banks can even send messages to the user through a secure channel which can be easily implemented in any bank’s security infrastructure.
Easy deployment, installation and use
Digipass 870 uses a standard driver compliant with all popular operating systems such as Windows, Linux and MacOS. Digipass 870 does not require the installation of a separate driver. The reader is not personalized and as a result can randomly be distributed to large customer bases.
When used in unconnected stand-alone mode, Digipass 870 offers the same functionality as other unconnected Digipass devices, including strong authentication and e-signatures.
Digipass 870 is perfectly suited for environments with high security requirements including digital signatures, secure PIN verification, corporate network access, strong authentication (internet banking), and e-commerce transactions.
Digipass 870 can be delivered with a wide variety of applications including MasterCard CAP, Visa Dynamic Passcode Authentication (DPA) and various domestic and proprietary schemes.
