The Smart Card Revolution
On August 9th, 2011, Visa announced plans to expedite chip card migration and adoption of mobile payments in the United States. Other industry-leading organizations, including MasterCard, Wal-Mart, and First Data have all indicated that adoption of EMV chip-based payment technology will be happening in the United States in the near future. The migration to this technology will significantly affect card issuers and transaction processors. Rules are already in place to shift the liability related to fraudulent transactions from issuers to processors if smart cards are not supported.
Smart cards guard against the use of counterfeit cards, which are produced inexpensively by criminals who either "skim" card numbers from Point of Sale (POS) terminals or purchase large quantities of valid card numbers on the Internet. Smart cards support Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), a two-key encryption system that has been used for many years to provide critical security services for online banking, secure VPN connections, and more.
It is essential that a compliant hardware security solution be integrated into smart card-based payment systems to protect the encryption keys needed to validate transactions. Card validation occurs when EMV cards are used in online mode and a transaction processor communicates with a hardware security module (HSM) to confirm cardholder authenticity prior to approving funds for a transaction. HSMs have internal Tamper- Resistant Security Modules (TRSM) which automatically erase encryption keys if they are physically tampered with. In the U.S., the Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS 140-2 Level 3) provided by the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) are used to ensure that TRSMs are properly engineered and implemented. All Futurex HSMs adhere to these and other globally-recognized standards.Futurex offers compliant, hardware-based solutions for:
