UL to facilitate market adoption of 3-D Secure with an enhanced version of UL’s Self-Test Platform that streamlines the process of testing and approval of 3-D Secure components by making it scalable, user-friendly and web-based.
Following the recent announcement by EMVCo, UL, the industry leader in interconnected and cashless solutions, today announced the launch of a versatile web-based platform to support ecosystem stakeholders in advancing the next generation of 3-D Secure.
Based on the latest EMV® 3-D Secure Specification, this new web-based test platform provides an environment where product providers, PSPs, merchants and issuers can perform tests, while they are building and enhancing their 3-D Secure components. Moreover, stakeholders can request approval services from UL’s 3DS Testing Laboratory through the platform, cutting down their time-to-market and reducing process complexity.
The platform provides a one-stop EMV 3-D Secure implementation and certification solution. The platform has been validated by a number of beta customers this spring and is now available to all players wishing to implement EMV 3-D Secure in a more automated, user-friendly and scalable way.
Isabelle Noblanc, Vice President & General Manager of UL Identity Management & Security, said: ‘‘We are very proud to be the first to launch this robust testing platform and laboratory for approval services. This all-in-one solution ensures security, performance and user experience for all stakeholders implementing the EMV 3-D Secure technology. It greatly contributes to our promise to empower trust in an interconnected and cashless world.’’
