Cryptera & Zytronic launch secure PIN entry solution

Cryptera, a provider of secure payment technologies, has partnered with Zytronic to launch secure PIN entry for large format touch screens.

Zytronic, which provides durable, high performance Projected Capacitive Technology touch sensors said the new version of its touch screens is now available to support secure PIN entry applications. The new PCI PTS compliant product, named CryptoTouch Unattended has been co-developed with Cryptera, a world leader in Secure Payment Technologies.

Cryptera CryptoTouch Unattended is available in any design of Zytronic touch sensors between 10 – 24” diagonal. It enables authenticated payments to be handled completely via the touch screen in ATMs, kiosks and other payment terminals without the need for a separate encrypting mechanical PIN pad (EPP).

Brian Schleisner, vice president sales and marketing, Cryptera A/S said, “The increasing use of touch screens as the main user interface in unattended transactions has created a need to allow sensitive information to be entered securely on the screen.

“Zytronic and Cryptera have worked together to create a solution that addresses this need, simplifying the design of unattended kiosks, ticket machines, car park payment terminals and ATMs. Zytronic PCT touch screens are currently the only screens of this size integrated with CryptoTouch technology.”

The solution includes an Encrypted Touch Controller and a Secure Touch sensor purpose designed to meet PCI 3.x and EMV requirements. It links with a Secure Chip and PIN or Contactless Card Reader in order to allow support for offline PIN verification. CryptoTouch Unattended and Zytronic touch screens have already been successfully used together in ATMs for a European bank.

Ian Crosby, vice president of sales and marketing at Zytronic added, “As card payments eclipse cash, there is a clear expectation that unattended payment terminals of all kinds will accept this form of payment. Integrating a separate encrypting PIN pad for authentication increases system cost and can be inconvenient, spoiling the sleek, clean lines that kiosk designers and users are increasingly seeking.”
