As technology evolves, it shapes the world around it. This is evident in public transportation where smartphones represent the next evolution for ticketing. A recent Juniper Research report notes that mobile and wearable ticket purchases are projected to exceed 14 billion in 2018. This accounts for 54% of total digital ticket sales across transport and events sectors. Embracing mobile ticketing is beneficial for both operators and customers. A combination of cost reductions on card and paper issuance for operators and added convenience for passengers makes mobile ticketing an enticing solution for both.
Satellites today contain highly complex embedded microelectronics systems complete with processing, data storage, and data receiving/transmitting capabilities. Further, they are controlled by ground stations, computers in data centers. They are therefore susceptible to threats prevalent in cloud computing architectures including insider threats, malicious downloads, etc. As such, satellite security must include access control to grant access to system resources only to authorized users, authentication
to verify the identity of a user or device, Availability to assure that a system will be usable when it needs to be, confidentiality to ensure that data is disclosed only to authorized systems or users, data integrity to ensure that data transmitted from a source is not modified, altered, or destroyed, and accountability to ensure that the system actions are logged with the identity of the entity initiating the action and the data and time the action occurred. Rambus security products, deployed in satellites and ground based equipment, are well suited to solve key security problems in each of these required areas of security functionality.
In this Frost & Sullivan analysis, the report describes key requirements in the Internet of Things (IoT) security market and presents details of how Rambus addresses these needs through effective, economical and easy-to-deploy IoT security solutions.
In today’s digital, on-demand world, we have instant access to information, products and services. Digitization and digitalization has driven this change, and we are now accustomed to almost instant payments via cards, web services and apps. The development of instantaneous payments between bank accounts is therefore a natural evolution.
Real-time payments (RTP) have been proliferating globally since 1973, increasingly driven by the need for payments clearing to keep pace with today’s on-demand digital world. The success of anti-fraud measures like EMV® chip, EMV® 3-D Secure and payment tokenization to mitigate card-present and -not present fraud in-store and online, has caused fraudsters to look elsewhere for more vulnerable targets.
Designed for central banks and clearing houses to secure account-based transactions, Payment Account Tokenization is a comprehensive software solution that replaces sensitive account numbers with unique tokens and reduces the risk of fraud for transactions including direct credit, direct debit and person-to-person (P2P) payments.
