3-D Secure Optimization using Delegated Authentication

In this edition, we have Matt Cooke and James Jenkins discussing the 3-D Secure (3DS) optimization with a focus on Delegated Authentication, one of the key tools for minimizing friction during an eCommerce transaction while at the same time reducing fraud. Arcot is actively working with issuers and merchants on Arcot Delegated Authentication Framework to provide the contractual vehicle to support these transactions. This supports other tools such as Trusted Beneficiary, Data Only, and a wide range of available exemptions all designed to make 3DS work better. We also discuss the increasing problem of fraud attacks on Authorized Push Payments (APP) where fraudsters trick genuine cardholders to complete a fraudulent transaction. We explore how to leverage the Arcot Network to identify high-risk beneficiary accounts before funds are transferred thereby blocking fraud and protecting often some of the most vulnerable customers.
