Increasing flexibility and reducing cost of implementation by eliminating a discrete Secure Element (SE), Rambus Host Card Emulation, including technology from Bell ID, provisions a payment card on a mobile device leveraging cloud-based software and the mobile operating system to enable a “virtual” SE.
Learn about Host Card Emulation
Near field communication (NFC) technology and mobile wallets have traditionally stored all the data needed to complete a transaction on a physical secure element (SE) within a mobile device. However, host card emulation (HCE) technology has enabled service providers to sidestep the integration and commercial deployment challenges associated with the SE model.
Part of a modular software platform, our HCE solutions can be combined with our Tokenization and Transaction Managers to enhance the security of the implementation and enable our customers to become their own Token Service Provider.
