Gemplus Fighting

Reports of friction between members of Gemplus top management and allegation of financial irregularities have apparently been overblown. Yesterday, the smart card manufacturer reported that accounting firms hired to investigate the claims found no indication of intentional wrongdoing or circumvention of corporate or tax laws. Rumors that Gemplus CEO Antonio Perez and Gemplus founder Marc Lassus had fought vigorously over the company’s restructuring plans were exaggerated according to company officials. As the economy softened and demand for Gemplus products waned, the company decided to close two plants and layoff about 800 employees. For the second quarter Gemplus reported revenue of 252 million Euros and an operating loss of 12 million Euros. The restructuring underway saves the company 40 million Euros in annual expenses. Gemplus has signed a major contract with Target Corporation to provide smart cards and in-home readers for the ‘Target smart VISA’ card launch, scheduled for the fourth quarter. (CF Library 8/1/01)

EMV PLUS

At the Proton World Forum in Brussels this week, Proton World launched “EMV Plus” its new credit/debit solution based on the EMV 2000 specifications and Proton Prisma Single Profile EMV (SP/EMV), a new entry-level product in the Proton Prisma family of smart card products aimed at EMV issuers.

“EMV Plus” has been developed in close collaboration with EMV issuers. It is made up of a card application, a host module and a range of complementary services, including advice on migration from magstripe systems, EMV training, partner selection and project management. “EMV Plus” features multiple brands, fast on-line authorisation, multiple profiles, co-branding, card manufacturer independence, simplified personalisation and unsurpassed security. It offers issuers cost savings, an improved choice of partners, greater simplicity, a system based on open standards and a vision for the future of EMV by providing a solution that is flexible and scaleable.

Proton Prisma SP/EMV cards are based on the CALC platform, Proton World’s spearhead implementation of the Open Platform 2.1 specifications, which is common to all Proton Prisma, and will contain “EMV Plus” and space for Third-Party-defined applications such as secure access or customer loyalty schemes.

Proton Prisma SP/EMV has been developed in response to requests from EMV credit/debit issuers who require the simplest possible smart card solution at the lowest-possible price for their initial EMV migration.

Proton World sees Proton Prisma SP/EMV as an entry-level product which nevertheless offers a full solution for mono-application EMV projects. The card and host software is backed up with a full range of training modules, card personalisation and management tools and the benefit of Proton World’s expertise in project definition and management. Issuers retain the options of migrating to, or mixing Proton Prisma SP/EMV with, more sophisticated Proton Prisma multi-application card solutions in the future, because both CALC and each single application is identical to those used in the other Proton Prisma profile packages: (BP (basic), EP (embedded), MP (mobile) and DP (dynamic)).

The first customer for Proton Prisma SP/EMV will be Banksys, Proton World’s Belgian licensee, which has affirmed its commitment to Proton World’s Proton Prisma technology roadmap.

The Proton Prisma range of smart card products, which was launched earlier this year, retains and reinforces the open architecture and state-of-the-art, end-to-end security that has contributed to the success of the Proton technology, and offers compliance with the leading international smart card standards. This means that issuers retain the widest possible choice of system components from leading manufacturers, within a security framework defined by Proton World.

Peter Stroo, Products & Marketing Manager at Proton World, said: ” We have developed the Proton Prisma SP/EMV solution based on our field experience. Its deployment by issuers is a start point for EMV, not an end point. Proton Prisma SP/EMV will enable issuers to move smoothly and cost-effectively to the deployment of multiple-application smart cards, while enjoying immediatly the benefits of CALC, such as card manufacturer-independence.”

Armand Linkens, CEO of Proton World, said: “Proton Prisma is the next generation of smart card products, and issuers who use are far more diverse and require great flexibility.This is why we have extended the Proton Prisma family to cover a wide range of smart card and SIM applications. The cost-effectiveness of Proton Prisma SP/EMV will be particularly appealing to issuers who wish to issue different types of cards to different segments of their customer bases.”

MOBILE 3-D SECURE

Visa International announced
a new global specification that ensures the security of Internet payments made
over mobile phones.

The Mobile 3-D Secure specification is based on existing payment
technologies and is a result of Visa’s ongoing efforts to ensure that both
buyers and sellers are protected when they use or accept a Visa card. It
supports Visa’s ongoing commitment to realize universal commerce (u-commerce)
— the ability to conduct secure commerce anywhere, anytime with any type of
device.

Developed in conjunction with some 15 major industry players, including
Ericsson, Motorola and Oracle Mobile, the specification is part of Visa
Authenticated Payment, a comprehensive e-commerce program designed to ensure
safe and secure online payment transactions. The Mobile 3-D Secure
specification extends payment authentication initiatives into mobile commerce,
enabling Visa card issuers to validate the identity of their cardholders in
real time. It ensures that payment data sent over open networks is not
compromised and allows consumers to actively protect their Visa accounts from
unauthorized use when shopping on-line over mobile devices.
“While the vast majority of Internet transactions still take place via
PCs, it is essential that a secure standard be in place for transactions that
originate from mobile phones or other mobile devices,” said Philip Yen,
executive vice president, e-Visa International. “Consumers need to feel the
same sense of security when they shop online using a mobile phone as when they
shop in the physical world.”

The Mobile 3-D Secure specification supports global interoperability,
enabling consumers to have a consistent and seamless experience regardless of
the method or device being used to access the Internet. It minimizes the
impact on merchants and requires no changes to backend payment systems.
The growth in mobile phone usage shows a clear trend toward wireless
Internet devices. According to Nokia, during 2002, more people will be
accessing the Internet with handheld, wireless devices than via landlines.
Analyst and consulting company Ovum Limited suggests that, globally,
373 million wireless subscribers will be buying on-line in 2004.
A number of Visa m-commerce programs are currently underway worldwide to
test the viability of m-commerce payment solutions and raise consumer
awareness. In Asia, Visa has partnered with Hutchison Telecommunications and
Dao Heng Bank to develop a mobile payment service using Mobile 3-D Secure. In
Europe, Visa has signed a strategic alliance with Omnitel Vodafone while, in
the US, Visa and Sprint are working together to help facilitate secure mobile
payments and create opportunities to purchase goods and services over the
Sprint PCS nationwide wireless network.

Barclaycard’s IT Director, Jennifer Allerton, said: “There is strong
demand from consumers and merchants in Europe for mobile card payments. At
Barclaycard, we have successfully trialled 3D-Secure on the Internet, and
working with Visa and Arcot, we demonstrated 3D-Secure working over WAP in
June. This announcement is a significant step forward in the development of
m-commerce.”

The Mobile 3-D Secure specification can be obtained from Visa at
mobile3d@visa.com.

Visa is the world’s leading payments brand and the largest payments system
worldwide. Visa-branded cards generate almost US$2 trillion in annual volume
and are accepted at over 22 million locations around the world. The Visa
organization plays a pivotal role in advancing new payment products and
technologies to benefit its 21,000 member financial institutions and their
cardholders. Visa is a leader in Internet based payments and is pioneering
the creation of u-commerce, or universal commerce — the ability to conduct
commerce anytime, anywhere, over any type of device.

Qxpress Phone Card Terminals

Q Comm International Inc., a prepaid wireless technology and information services company, Tuesday announced that it has entered into a strategic alliance with Houston-based Camelot Comm Inc., a prepaid services company.

Through the alliance, Camelot Comm has begun placing Q Comm’s Qxpress terminals, already with nearly 300 installed in various retail locations nationwide.

“Q Comm’s Qxpress POSA system delivers powerful benefits to our retailers,” said Nik Thomas, president of Camelot Comm. “There are the obvious benefits of reporting, control, and inventory elimination. But more and more as you examine the operational issues at the front lines of these retailers, there are increasing needs to carry multiple denominations for multiple products and carriers.

“When you have a $10, $20, $30, $50 and $100 denomination for just one product, this becomes a major issue. Qxpress provides a seamless solution for all of these concerns.”

Camelot Comm anticipates continued roll out of Qxpress terminals. “My plan is to install 7,500 Qxpress terminals by the end of next year,” said Thomas.

Camelot currently provides various retail outlets with several prepaid services including home dial tone, prepaid wireless, and prepaid long distance phone cards. Stores that Camelot serves include check cashing outlets, food marts, convenience stores, independent cellular shops, and grocery stores.

Camelot is the exclusive electronic PIN distributor of Smoke Signal, one of the nation’s largest prepaid dial tone companies. Camelot is also the exclusive distributor of Everyone’s Debit Card (EDC), a new prepaid Master Card. Camelot will officially unveil the product at the National Check Casher’s Association show in San Diego in October.

Camelot’s Thomas anticipates running EDC replenishment sales through Q Comm’s Qxpress terminals starting in first quarter of 2002.

“The EDC card will be issued with zero value so that customers have to go to a Camelot agent location to load and reload this card,” said Thomas. “Once it is loaded, it is used just like a Master Card. It basically gives the unbanked a virtual bank.

“Users will be able to transfer money over ATM networks worldwide, buy things on the Internet, verify a check, rent a car, gain access to telephone service while at a motel, travel without the exposure of carrying cash and enjoy a lot of other important services that many of us take for granted. It gives the unbanked the ability to use a credit card in a society that really demands it.

“We are excited about adding EDC to our portfolio of prepaid services. Through Smoke Signal, who has already spent over $40 million advertising their brand, we have more than 2,000 points of distribution domestically through which we can offer EDC replenishment. Given our relationships with Q Comm and Smoke Signal, I think we’re going to do some big things.

“I’ve been in the prepaid industry for six years and I think that the timing of Q Comm’s technology with the industry’s development is impeccable. We’re going to have a ball over the next couple of years.”

“Our partnership with Camelot is significant,” said Stephen C. Flaherty, president of Q Comm International. “Their exclusive distribution relationships with Smoke Signal and the EDC Master Card product give them and us substantial competitive advantages in the prepaid market.

“Like them, we’re also excited to add the EDC product to our terminals. With estimates showing that more than 30 million working Americans are unbanked, we think the EDC product has great potential. Camelot is a reputable and aggressive marketing company and we’re excited about this partnership.”
