In the demo below, we show how the APG8202 increases security when using credit cards for online purchases via its Challenge-Respond Mode. Since a user will need both an OTP generator and a PIN code to make an online purchase, fraudulent purchases become more difficult:
This demo shows how one can use APG8202’s Challenge-Response Mode, which is the second mode of CAP, to enable both users and merchants to benefit from enhanced security, via an added set of values, the Challenge, that a user must provide aside from his PIN in order to proceed with any transaction.
The APG8202 doesn’t just generate security codes. It is also used toauthenticate users. Here we show how users can verify their identity by using the APG8202 with a smart card (something the user has) and a PIN code (something that the user knows).
This demo shows how one can use APG8202’s Identify Mode, which is the first mode of CAP, to enable users to authenticate themselves by inserting their respective cards in the CAP Reader.
Online banking and shopping transactions often require PIN codes to authenticate users. But what if malicious parties manage to guess user PIN codes, or steal them mid-transaction? ACS helps address this security risk with the APG8202. Completely standalone, the APG8202 performs authentication not via PC, but in itself, minimizing exposure of the PIN code online.
We will also be posting a series of demos that show the additional layers of security that the APG8202 enables for banking and payment transactions, i.e. authenticating users through smart cards and PIN codes; enabling digital signatures; and generating secure one-time codes.
