Cryptera Modular Solutions
The Cryptera Modular Solutions Payment System is designed to provide kiosk manufacturers with the ability to customize the interface of their machines while providing the end user with sophisticated secure payment technology.
The Modular Solutions consists of:
- Payment Controller (optional)
- NFC Reader
- Secure Card Reader
- Encrypting PIN Pad or Encrypting Touch Sensor
that can be arranged however the kiosk manufacturer sees fit.
The solution offers a choice of different Encrypting PIN Pads (EPPs). Alternatively the Cryptera Encrypting Touch Sensor can be used instead of an EPP. The individual components in the solution can be chosen depending on the requirements for the payment scheme and the specific kiosk design. Components can be mounted independently to give flexibility when designing the user interface of the kiosk.The security is handled by establishing encrypted links between the components. The installation procedure handles the exchange of encryption keys required for secure operation. The encryption protects PIN codes as well as card data.
The Cryptera MPS meets the international security standards, including PCI PTS 3.x with SRED. The optional secure Payment Controller facilitates PCI DSS compliance. EMV Level 2 kernels for contact and contactless cards are also available to application developers through a Cryptera partnership. For some applications it may be preferable to connect the secure devices directly to an existing controller.
