APG8202 PINhandy 2

OTP Generator

APG8202 PINhandy 2 is a reliable handheld device facilitating security in applications through the generation of dynamic one-time passwords. Each of these passwords can only be used once for each online transaction, and is generated following the device’s verification of both the card and the PIN code entered by the cardholder. It functions on a purely standalone mode, thus limiting exposure of the security keys to the device. Compliant with major banking, computing and safety standards such as Mastercard® CAP and PLA, VISA DPA and EMV Level 1, it is a product you can trust for the security of your applications!

About APG8202

The banking sector is one of the most targeted victims of fraud-related incidents that have emerged along with the advancement of technology. These attacks, often performed by hackers and/or phishers by stealing confidential information through increasingly sophisticated methods, generate huge losses and cause distress and worry among end-users. However, these incidents can be prevented by employing certain measures needed to strengthen system security. In this regard, the APG8202 PINhandy 2 OTP Generator addresses such needs.

APG8202 PINhandy 2 is an addition to the reliable dynamic password generator line of ACS. Portable and economical, this device operates on a purely standalone mode. Because of this, exposure of sensitive information in the card is limited to the device. APG8202 uses a two-level authentication process requiring cardholders to insert their EMV cards into their respective devices and enter their PIN code using the built-in PIN-pad. After a successful verification, it generates a dynamic one-time password that can only be used once to securely perform several online transactions like online shopping and e-banking.

The APG8202 is capable of One Time Passwords, Challenge-Response Authentication Codes, and Transaction Data Signing (PKI digital signatures) based on EMV cards’ security keys. It is also compliant with major banking, computing and safety standards such as Mastercard® CAP and PLA, VISA DPA and EMV Level 1. It facilitates security in applications by allowing users to generate a one-time password that substitutes for the repetitive input of the same login details that makes them prone to emerging fraud attacks like Card-not-Present (CNP) and Man-in-the-Middle attacks.
