First Data Selects IronKey to Help Clients Prevent Online Banking Fraud

August 01, 2011 07:00 ET
New Solution Helps to Protect Customers and Offers Financial Institutions Competitive Advantage
SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 1, 2011) - First Data Corporation, a global leader in electronic commerce and payment processing, will refer clients of the First Data Internet Banking solution to IronKey's Trusted Access as an option to help them protect their customers from potential attacks by criminals on an online banking user's PC.
IronKey Trusted Access is a secure browsing solution that financial institutions provide to their Internet banking customers. Trusted Access helps to avert criminal attacks that use malicious software such as ZeuS, SpyEye, Sunspot, and OddJob, as well as new threats that continue to evolve. According to research firm Gartner Inc., crimeware designed to take over online banking accounts and steal money is now the most significant threat concerning U.S. banks. [1]
Trusted Access will assist First Data clients who choose the service in meeting Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) guidelines for new online security controls. Trusted Access is a fraud prevention solution that may be implemented as part of a financial institution's layered security program, which is required by the FFIEC's new Internet authentication guidelines. Financial institutions will be evaluated under these new guidelines beginning in January 2012.
"Online account takeovers and fraud are significant concerns for financial institutions today," said Cindi Lieblich, vice president of Product Development for First Data. "Because Internet banking fraud often starts with an attack on the account holders' PCs, regulators and industry experts recommend that financial institutions protect Internet banking sessions with layered security controls. With IronKey Trusted Access, the First Data Internet Banking solution offers an additional layer of fraud protection using industry-leading technology that enables our clients to further differentiate their product offerings and capture new business."
IronKey Trusted Access is an intelligent security software and Internet security service that is easy to use. Trusted Access provides a secure Web browser protected in a fully virtualized, read-only environment tailored to protect online banking sessions from known and unknown crimeware. Even if a computer is infected with malware, the online banking session should remain safe, secure, and private. Unlike other approaches, Trusted Access assumes a client's computer is infected with the latest zero-day attack that would go undetected by anti-virus and other software technologies. The IronKey solution includes the Trusted Access USB security device, which launches a protected, virtualized operating system and Web browser that only works with the IronKey Trusted Network and, when deployed, limits the end user's online access to bank-approved sites.
"IronKey is excited to have Trusted Access offered as a part of the First Data Internet Banking solution and to provide customers with the latest fraud protection, secure browsing, and compliance technology. With today's criminal attacks, financial institutions must start with the assumption that their customers' computers are infected with crimeware. That's why NACHA, FBI, and FFIEC are recommending financial institutions provide security options like IronKey," said IronKey CEO Arthur Wong. "IronKey Trusted Access can help First Data's clients meet their compliance obligations and deliver a safer environment for their customers' online banking sessions."
Trusted Access is designed to protect online banking sessions from keyboard logger, man-in-the-browser, 'backconnect' Trojan, and DNS tampering attacks. It is also designed to protect online banking sessions from zero-day attacks, spawned by the continuous introduction of new financial malware that goes undetected by up-to-date anti-virus software, browser plug-ins, firewalls and other security software used by online banking users. Instead of trying to detect every known and to-be-developed attack, Trusted Access assumes a computer is infected with crimeware and provides the user an isolated, safer, and more secure online banking experience.
In a period of 12 months, more than 70,000 ZeuS variants were detected in the wild, with many, many more going undetected. A staggering 25% of computers, according to latest reports from the Anti-Phishing Working Group (APWG), are infected with banking Trojans such as ZeuS and SpyEye, used by criminals to take over online bank accounts and steal millions from businesses and municipalities.

Legacy Support Leaves Chip-And-PIN Vulnerable, Researcher Says

Black Hat talk will show that security and backwards compatibility are at odds in popular authentication technology

Jul 31, 2011 | 12:38 PM
By Robert Lemos, Contributing Writer 
Dark Reading

Vulnerabilities in the increasingly popular chip-and-PIN authentication technology used in credit cards could make it easy for attackers to steal data at the point of sale, a researcher says. At the Black Hat USA conference in Las Vegas this week, Andrea Barisani, chief security engineer for secure design consultancy Inverse Path, will join with colleagues to show how flaws in chip-and-PIN -- which is becoming a standard in Europe and Asia -- can be easily exploited.
Chip-and-PIN systems are designed to support legacy transactions -- including the transmission of the card's password or PIN in plain text, Barisani observes. As a result, it can be a trivial matter for an attacker to install a skimmer on a point-of-sale terminal and steal the credit card data.
Barisani says these flaws can be found in current and emerging credit card systems, including the EuroPay-Mastercard-Visa (EMV) system that is being implemented worldwide. While EMV supports three types of cards -- older magnetic stripe cards, current chip cards, and more secure chip cards -- skimmers can force transactions to use the least secure transaction method, he warns.
"EMV is broken," Barisani says. "In order to fix the problem, they will have to change the standard and break compatibility with older cards."  read more

Assessor Validates VeriFone’s PAYware Mobile Enterprise Compliant with Payment Security Requirements

QSA Coalfire Systems’ Assessment Says App is Not Within Scope of PA-DSS; Mobile Payment Solution for Smartphones, PDAs and Tables Can Reduce Scope of Overall PCI DSS Compliance
SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--VeriFone Systems, Inc. (NYSE: PAY), today announced that an independent evaluation by Coalfire Systems, Inc, a leading IT audit and compliance firm, has validated the security compliance of VeriFone‘s PAYware Mobile Enterprise solution for enabling smartphones, PDA’s and tablets to securely accept payments.
“Coalfire’s assessment provides merchants with the assurance they can use a mobile-based payment application without violating the PA-DSS standard and can safely deploy the VeriFone solution without risking PCI DSS compliance”
Coalfire, a PCI Qualified Security Assessor (QSA) and PCI Qualified Payment Application Security Assessor, determined that the PAYware Mobile Enterprise application does not capture, store, process or transmit cardholder data as part of authorization or settlement, and thus “is not within scope of PA-DSS.” As recently outlined by the PCI Security Standards Council, applications that do not store, process, or transmit cardholder data do not fall under the PA-DSS program.
“Coalfire’s assessment provides merchants with the assurance they can use a mobile-based payment application without violating the PA-DSS standard and can safely deploy the VeriFone solution without risking PCI DSS compliance,” said Erik Vlugt, VeriFone vice president of marketing for retail and vertical segments. “Those merchants who chose PAYware Mobile Enterprise to revolutionize customer service and store operations can save considerable cost, time, and effort in their compliance efforts.”
According to Coalfire’s report, when implemented according to specific PCI guidance provided by VeriFone, the company’s PAYware Mobile solution “can be deployed in a fully PCI DSS compliant manner and can reduce the scope of PCI DSS compliance in a merchant environment.”
PAYware Mobile Enterprise integrates with existing in-store POS systems and incorporates a PCI PTS-approved card encryption sleeve and PIN debit keypad, as well as a 2D bar code scanner for quickly and efficiently performing mobile check out or inventory control tasks. VeriFone’s mobile payment solution for enterprise retail environments also incorporates VeriShield Total Protect, Secured by RSA, providing end-to-end data encryption and tokenization that ensures no card data can be transmitted or stored in an unsecure manner.
Coalfire determined that VeriFone’s mobile payment solution complies with Visa Best Practices for Mobile Payment Acceptance Solutions v 1.0, released on 27 April, 2011, and evaluated three key aspects of VeriFone’s PAYware Mobile for small to medium-sized merchants and PAYware Mobile Enterprise for large retail enterprises:
  • The PAYware Mobile card encryption sleeve can be deployed in a PCI DSS compliant manner and reduce the scope of PCI DSS compliance for merchants.
  • The PAYware Mobile POS application running on a mobile device with the card encryption sleeve and VeriShield Total Protect is out of scope of PA-DSS as it does not capture, store, process or transmit cardholder data as part of authorization or settlement.
  • Forensic analysis of the mobile device in scope of this assessment showed no transmission or persistence of unencrypted cardholder data during and following card present transactional testing.
Coalfire’s report is available at:

Merchant Reputation Can Drive Mobile Payments Adoption, Says Auriemma Consulting Group

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sooner or later the U.S. will see widespread adoption of mobile payments, says the experts, but they disagree about how soon and how widespread it will be. Big players in banking and in telephony are investing heavily in developing mobile payment infrastructure. The ultimate object of this feverish activity is consumer adoption, as financial institutions proceed on the assumption that “if we build it, they will come”. However, results of a recent survey by Cardbeat®, a syndicated monthly publication of Auriemma Consulting Group (ACG), suggest that large retailers may have a significant influence on the mobile payments adoption curve.

 Auriemma Consulting Group
“Mobile banking, as opposed to mobile payments, is becoming mainstream, keeping pace with the penetration of smartphones”
“Mobile banking, as opposed to mobile payments, is becoming mainstream, keeping pace with the penetration of smartphones,” noted Dr. Patricia Sahm, Managing Director at ACG. Smartphone ownership has jumped from 32% in Q3 2010 to 41% less than a year later, among the 9 out of 10 consumers who have a mobile phone. Just under a third of Cardbeat respondents say they have mobile banking capabilities, and 40% of them have downloaded a banking application within the last 12 months. “Despite the recency of their adoption, users show a fairly high frequency of usage, with half using the app at least once a week,” she said. Also, while informational uses predominate with 79% who use their phone to check their balance, about 4 out of 10 consumers do online bill payment from their phones, paving the way for the transition to mobile payments, she notes.
Security is a concern for almost all users, even the under-35s who are the most positively predisposed toward the concept of mobile payments. Overall, half of consumers say they are very or somewhat uncomfortable with the idea of making purchases with a mobile phone, and their primary concern is security; they also say they have enough payment options and see no need for a new one. At the other end of the scale, one-third of respondents were very or somewhat positive about the concept, and these proponents say mobile payments would save time and money and would be convenient; this group also likes new technology.
Both groups, however, say that the most likely place they would expect to use mobile payments would be in-person at a large retailer. In contrast, only 20% would use it to pay a parking meter. “It’s an interesting finding, because generally with a new payment technology people want to test it out with small purchases first,” Sahm pointed out. “However, both the technophiles and technophobes say they’d feel more comfortable with a large retailer, where the average ticket size is fairly high, rather than the trivial amounts involved with feeding the meter. Large retailers give a sense of security that the consumer would have recourse in case of a problem, and their adoption of mobile payment technology will be a signal to consumers that it’s ok to try it.”
Cardbeat research data was gathered using a web-based survey administered to 502 credit card users in the U.S. during the month of June 2011. The number of interviews completed on a monthly basis is sufficient to allow for statistical significance testing between sub-groups at the 95% confidence level ±5%.
