HSM from SafeNet Helps Cards Prepaid Achieve PCI Certification

SafeNet : 23 November, 2010  (Application Story)
Transparent data encryption achieved using the Luna SA hardware security module from SafeNet assists in Cards Prepaid gaining the Payment Card Industry's DSS Level 2 compliance certification
SafeNet's Luna SA HSM has been selected by Cards Prepaid to support transparent data encryption, PIN retrieval, and high levels of cryptographic operations per second. The Luna SA HSM also ensures compliance with the latest Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).

The Luna SA HSM from SafeNet was selected over rival vendors including Thales, due to the combined functionality and service for PIN IVR, customisation and support of MSFT EKM.

Cards Prepaid is now able to integrate Microsoft's SQL Database for storage of sensitive customer information, using the Luna SA HSMs to securely store the server's master cryptographic keys, whilst creating an audit trail to maintain compliance. Deployment of the Luna SA was completed in less than four weeks.

Cards Prepaid designs and manages prepaid debit card programmes and offers full-service prepaid transaction solutions such as expense cards or payroll cards management solutions and reporting tools. Cards Prepaid delivers a reliable and secure solution in compliance with PCI DSS Level 2.0. SafeNet Luna SA HSM's ability to perform Extensible Key Management (EKM) as well as PIN block decrypts over Interactive Voice Response (IVR) were additional key factors for the company.

Steve Taylor, Cards Prepaid's CTO, commented, "SafeNet demonstrated a very clear understanding of the prepaid market in Europe. We found their customer support and flexibility superior to that of their competitors. They were also able to easily customise our PIN decrypts for IVR and worked closely with us to quickly deploy the solution."

Mark Yakabuski, HSM Product Manager, SafeNet, said, "Through our work with Cards Prepaid Ltd, we are establishing best practices that will help their customers directly. Our collaboration means that Cards Prepaid can easily expand to accommodate their growing customer base and provide a reliable, standards-compliant security solution."
