ID TECH now certified for key injection for pin pads

June 25, 2009 - ID TECH, the leading manufacturer of custom and standard POS peripherals, has extended its field of service to provide certified secure PIN pad key injection services for companies utilizing electronic payment systems.

Due to the rapid increase of credit card fraud cases in recent years, certified high-security key injection service facilities have become a vital part of the payment industry. The TG-3 and VISA PIN Certifications not only have stringent requirements on the physical integrity of the facility but also on key handling and personnel management to prevent keys from being compromised.

A company with more than 20 years of expertise in POS peripherals and the latest PCI certified PIN entry devices, ID TECH is proud to announce that its key injection facility has successfully been certified for TG-3 & VISA PIN as of May 2009.

Encryption key management and PIN pad key injection are both mandatory for any electronic payment system that supports debit cards, EBT cards or other transactions that require PIN entry. ID TECH will work with consumers and electronic payments processors to establish and maintain keys in a physically secure site by conforming to strict industry standard rules. ID TECH’s Key Injection service includes support for ANSI Standard Single and Triple DES DUKPT encryption.

With the ability to perform both DES and TDES encryption, ID TECH can take a customer’s PIN pad order and perform key injections on site, thus eliminating the need to go through a third party. By doing so, ID TECH is combining its quality products with certified services to provide tremendous convenience.
