Coppernic has announced that they have integrated the Alcineo SoftPOS payment solution into their rugged handheld device ticketing offering for Public Transportation markets. Coppernic is a market leader for handheld ticket inspection devices in France, with installations in 80% of French cities with more than 100K inhabitants. Alcineo is a specialist in the development of EMV payment kernels, contact and contactless and logical security modules. They partner with payment solution providers in a number of market applications, including transit.
Payment terminal providers must comply with PCI PTS requirements to deploy their products. But with many configurations possible, it can be cumbersome to define the most efficient security features., The PCI SSC released a FAQ, to provide guidance and best practices.
Alcineo will exhibit at the next edition of IT Trans, taking place in Karlsruhe, 10-12 May 2022
IT-TRANS is the leading International Conference and exhibition focused on IT solutions for Public Transport.
Focus on tokenisation in transit environment.
Indeed, the transformation of the card data in Card Number Alias or token enables to connect a card number to an individual card holder or an event.
This transformation is performed by cryptography computation.
The computation will always generate the same token for the same card if the same algorithm is used. This algorithm is a one way function, so, there’s no possibility to translate from a token to a card number.
International payment and security standards release specifications and test plans for payment terminal certification. These specifications and test plans evolve over time to increase interoperability, performance and security of smartcard transactions.
Come and meet us next week during Trustech, at our stand 5.2 A036. We will present our payment application for SoftPOS running on the Android powered Inari 8 pay tablet provided by Aava Mobile Oy !
Our team will be in Paris for Trustech, the global tradeshow for payment, identification and security.
Why don’t you join us for exciting and insightful discussions around payment, innovation and data security ?
Our team will welcome you with great pleasure to discuss in-person about our thoughts on digital payment technology, on the advances of SoftPOS innovation or on our logical solution for sensitive data protection.
The development of embedded software is a crucial step in the overall payment terminal manufacturing process. Payment devices can only be deployed when they prove compliance with international payment and security standards. Hence the integration and approval of EMV payment software is at the core of terminal manufacturers’ concerns.
There are many stages in a payment terminal life cycle, and payment solution providers must define their strategy at the earliest stage. Make the right decisions at the right time.
