Todos AB reveals new patented technology for Smart Card security
Banks can offer customers new services and greater security thanks to a unique Todos technology. It creates secure, trustworthy communications directly between the banks and smart cards.
By: Todos AB
Think of Autograf as a secure virtual private network between the bank and the smart card reader, immune to computer viruses, eavesdropping and hackers.
Internet crime keeps growing and traditional protection, such as SSL links on web browsers, look increasingly vulnerable because of computer viruses, spoofing and man-in-the-middle attacks. This new technology bypasses these risks and provides a trustworthy, secure communications channel.
The system ensures secure data entry. Hackers cannot modify or steal information that the user enters. This makes the technology an ideal way to protect sensitive customer data (such as PIN numbers) or transaction information (such as bank account details).
Banks would like to be able to do more with card readers and Todos’s new technology makes it possible. For example, they could let customers change their PIN code. Banks would also like to be able to do card management online. They could, for instance, download a loyalty application or new business functionality directly to the smart card.
In addition, Autograf enhances existing Todos transaction authentication functionality such as Dynamic Signatures (which varies the level of authentication according to the value of the transaction and the level of risk) and Sign-What-You-
"Attacks on SSL have made banks worried," says Peter Gullberg, VP for Product Strategy at Todos. "Our patented technology takes trust to a whole new level and allows banks to set up secure links directly to the smart card reader itself, bypassing existing threats and risks completely. We hope it will cut down internet crime and allow banks to do much more with their smart cards."
