Understanding Remote Key Loading

By using remote key loading (RKL), ATM operators have the opportunity to improve operating efficiency while at the same time enhancing security. In some locations around the world, RKL already is a standard; in others, it’s coming.

Simply put, RKL is the process of distributing the terminal master key from a central administration point to the EPP (Encrypted PIN Pad) or PED (PIN Entry Device). The code keys encrypt the information being sent back and forth between the ATM and the central processing center.
