TSS launches hardware encryption support for mobile wallets
Trusted Security Solutions Inc., developer of the A98 ATM key management system, now supports FIs and card issuers with hardware encryption for mobile wallet applications, according to a report from ATM Marketplace, a Mobile Payments Today sister publication.
TSS provides all of the subsystem components and programming for encryption required by VISA and MasterCard to facilitate push provisioning on iOS- and Android-based mobile applications.
TSS supplies the hardware encryption software along with a recommended hardware security module with the encryption capabilities required by the VISA and MC protocols.
"Many elements involved in the push provisioning encryption requirements for tokenizing cards in mobile applications are similar to symmetric and asymmetric functions our RKL solution performs for remote key loading ATMs," said Joe Wadlinger, senior systems software architect for TSS. "We've built a viable subsystem to work with mobile wallet applications. Our solution performs the required encryption — such as TDES CBC, AES CBC and GCM — within the HSM, which provides optimum security for CSRs, symmetric key requests and tokens."
