The disruptive potential of blockchain, the back-end technology that powers Bitcoin, lies in its ability to radically simplify financial processes. The mathematics behind the system are complex, but the ‘end product’ is simple: a highly secure, self-maintaining network which dramatically increases efficiency for transacting parties by rendering ‘centralized authorities’ like payment processors, notaries and possibly even banks, redundant.
In response to the rapid evolution of host card emulation (HCE), we have revised our HCE: NFC’s Missing Link eBook to include an exploration of the tokenization process and an overview of the prevailing deployment models for issuers.
It’s almost that time again – Money20/20 is right around the corner and what a year it has been! Tokenization has been the hot topic in the payments industry and is set to top the bill at the event. We’ll be on the ground discussing the live mobile payments projects that Bell ID has supported this year, together with how we can tailor our solutions to the specific needs of each customer.
Tokenization technology is underpinning the payments revolution. The method of replacing a consumer’s primary account number (PAN) with a surrogate value is being used to secure host card emulation (HCE) payments, secure element-based near field communication (NFC) mobile transactions, such as Apple Pay, and e-commerce payments.
