2. Encryption of Data

An advanced (U) SIM card technology is composed of a patented material tailored to serve as an intermediate “security token” between an existing SIM card and the mobile’s SIM card connector. It contains a microchip that provides encryption and secure data storage which meets international security standards and certified by CCEAL5+ and EMV.

All transaction requests initiated using the mPOD will be encrypted using the embedded hardware encryption engine and delivered using SMS as the communication channel. The message will be encrypted using “Ever Changing Session Keys” which are generated using the industry standard of Open Authentication (OATH) algorithm. In addition to encryption, each such SMS also contains a security code representing the integrity of the SMS that is verifiable at the engine embedded in the mPOD.Encryption algorithm – mPOD uses the Triple DES (3DES) encryption algorithm with a key length of 168 bits. Each mPOD client would have its own secret key that is used to encrypt and decrypt the message thereby increasing the security and protecting the identity of each mPOD client.

Besides that, for our Mobile Payment System, it uses TrustFieldTM Cryptographic Key Server (CKS) to protect, manage and authenticate users before the end user is allowed access to the Bank’s network. The CKS is a cryptographic solution that stores, guards and processes the secret key of each mPOD client.
