Push Provisioning

A convenient way to push digital cards into e-wallets
To offer Apple Pay, banks have to implement the mandatory in-app Apple Pay Push Provisioning of the card, directly from their banking app. Our Entrust mobile SDK with Apple Pay Push Provisioning allows you to do that.

It enables mobile banking users to securely push their Visa and Mastercard cards directly into third-party digital wallets – not only Apple Pay, but also Google Pay, Samsung Pay, Garmin Pay, FitBit Pay, Click-to-Pay, and e-commerce merchants. Banking customers can do this without step-up authentication because it is already authenticated by the bank.

A holistic customer experience and simplified payment journey

  • Convenience and Security: No need to manually enter the card details in the wallet app or on an e-commerce merchant website
  • Future-Proof: Based on Visa and Mastercard tokenization (compatible debit, credit, and prepaid card systems)
  • Unified Push Provisioning Management: Multi-scheme/use-cases/multi-CMS, including PAN encryption and key management

Here’s how it works for your Apple Pay customers:

  1. Click on the “Add to Apple Wallet” button in the banking app.
  2. Confirm notification and continue with biometric authentication.
  3. Accept Apple Pay’s terms and conditions.
  4. Wait for the card to be added to the wallet.
  5. Done! You can now pay with your digital card in Apple Pay (at point of sale or online) and manage the card in your banking app.

A holistic customer experience for a perfectly simplified payment journey

  • Convenience and security No need to manually enter the card details in the wallet app or on an e-commerce merchant website
  • Future-proof based on Visa and Mastercard tokenization (compatible Debit, Credit and Prepaid and all card systems)
  • Push provisioning management in a unified way (multi-scheme/use-cases/multi-CMS) including PAN encryption and key management

A unified simplified integration of push provisioning
Thanks to our unified PCI-DSS service (Apple Pay certified), the project and integration are simplified. The bank just needs to integrate our secure mobile SDK with our support and follow the 3 following steps:

  1. Initialize mobile SDK: mobile app calls the mobile SDK and shares a ClientID
  2. Device binding: mobile app pushes an encrypted PAN or a CardID to be bound to that mobile SDK
  3. Push card: mobile app calls the mobile SDK for pushing the card into any use case

*Other implementation options can be reviewed with the bank

Secure Interface

PCI-DSS compliant card display
To enable e-commerce payments through digital cards, banks must be able to display the card number to the client. But displaying this highly sensitive information means the banking app must comply with the PCI-DSS requirements.

That’s where our mobile software development kit (SDK) comes in. It is PCI-DSS compliant (for both iOS and Android) for transferring sensitive information between a mobile application and the bank. This is the industry's highest security requirement for software applications, so our highly secure mobile SDK enables you to securely display any sensitive information such as:

  • Card Display: Securely displays sensitive card details (card number, expiry date, CVV, CVV2) from the banking app.
  • PIN Management: Customers can display and modify their physical card PIN.

Security at its core
Our secure interface solution uses end-to-end encryption mechanisms to desensitize the mobile SDK and the intermediate servers so they have no way to decrypt or alter sensitive data. This enables the management of sensitive information, such as card numbers, cryptograms, and PIN codes.

Strong Customer Authentication

The right balance between security and convenience
While there’s no doubt that security is a top priority for the banking industry, finding the right balance between convenience and security has been an issue for a long time. Customers expect fast and convenient authentication when using their mobile devices.

No need to compromise on security when using our secure mobile SDK.

Mobile first design
Whether for web-banking operations, payments, or mobile banking, a smartphone is the best option to ensure cross-channel customer security.

  • Convenient: Mobile authentication is the most used form of authentication
  • Secure and Customizable: Through multi-factor authentication on a single device, mobile is now the best authentication tool
  • Widespread: Most people have a smartphone
  • Cost-Effective: No need to deploy hardware or send costly SMS

PSD2 Compliant
New regulations such as the Payment Services Directive (PSD2) by the EBA push banks to tighten the authentication of their customers to provide maximum security for various types of transactions, especially against online fraud.

strong customer authentication framework illustration 

PSD2 is a challenge for a lot of banks still relying on unsecured and non-compliant one-time passwords (OTPs) for transaction authentication.

With our secure mobile SDK, we make PSD2-compliant authentication easy for banks to deploy and convenient for your customers to use.

Adaptive multi-factor authentication
Our secure solution is based on one- to several-factor authentication. The first factor is transforming the device into a “trusted” device with leading security mechanisms. The “trusted” device can then be combined with any of the following factors:

  • Passcode
  • Device unlock: pattern, pin code, passcode, or any other method supported by the device (e.g., Face ID)
  • Fingerprint
  • Facial recognition

No biometrics or personal data is stored or processed outside the local mobile SDK, and we employ advanced encryption for server-side security checks.

The bank defines which combination of factors is relevant for each level of strong customer authentication, for example:

  • Low: Device unlock or fingerprint
  • Medium: Fingerprint + passcode
  • Strong: Fingerprint or passcode + facial recognition

Advanced Security Mechanisms
Our mobile SDK protects your customers from advanced malware attacks and transforms their smartphone into a “trusted” device through its multilayer security features:

  • Device binding
  • Root detection
  • Obfuscation
  • Anti-tampering
  • Anti-debugging
  • Anti-cloning

Part of any authentication option
Our authentication solution can be part of any authentication option that uses a smartphone for strong customer authentication, regardless of the operation channel. Use cases include:

  • Account access
  • 3DS authentication
  • Credit transfers, P2P
  • Mobile contactless payments and QR code
  • Mobile and desktop TPP application
  • Soft token

How it works
Example: Desktop checkout with 3DS 2.0 ecommerce payment

  1. The transaction is initiated on a desktop computer.
  2. A push notification is sent to the mobile device, which opens the banking application.
  3. The customer strongly authenticates according to the desired pattern (from simple consent to multi-factor authentication).
  4. The payment page automatically refreshes with the result of transaction.

Token Manager

More tokens means the need for more control
Tokenization is now standard for card issuers, but the digitalization of cards makes everything more complex.

  • How can cardholders control their digital cards stored into different e-commerce merchants and NFC wallets in a simple and seamless way?
  • How can cardholders have a consolidated view of their tokens?
  • How can banks offer a user-friendly experience?

API-driven for simpler, more convenient tokenization
Our token manager easily integrates with your card systems. We use APIs to unify provisioning and lifecycle management of tokens for all use cases, making it simpler and more convenient than most of the solutions proposed by card processors.

The user can push a card to a new device or merchant; visualize tokens, suspend, resume, or delete a token; and update tokens automatically when their card and/or their mobile phone is replaced, lost, or stolen.

A unified way to push tokens and give full control to the user
