GlobeSet Inc., a leading provider of SET Secure Electronic Transaction software for OEM solutions, announced the successful completion of interoperability testing between the following GlobeSet Payment System and IBM Payment Suite software payment applications:
GlobeSet Wallet v1.1 IBM Consumer Wallet v1.0.11, v1.2
GlobeSet POS v1.1 IBM Payment Server v1.0.15 (SDK 1.0.8)
GlobeSet Gateway v1.2 IBM Payment Gateway v126.96.36.199 (SDK 1.0.3)
GlobeSet CA v1.1 IBM Payment Registry v188.8.131.52
The testing utilized the GlobeSet and IBM standard interoperability testing plans to assess and advance interoperability between each of the applications required for SET transactions. Testing consisted of each vendor’s identified software applications performing and passing basic, advanced and comprehensive interoperability scenarios that replicated real-world payment card transactions between consumers, merchants, financial institutions and certificate authorities.
Approximately 120 test scenarios between the GlobeSet and IBM software applications were completed. Basic and advanced test scenarios performed ranged from receiving payment authorization and payment capture functions, respectively, to more comprehensive credit and payment reversal scenarios covering multiple aspects of message flows.
“This industry-first milestone, the most comprehensive in terms of interoperability testing between two leading SET software vendors, reflects each company’s commitment to customer needs in the financial and retail markets,” said Wes Byrne, vice president, Product Development, GlobeSet. “Customers require technology that works easily and seamlessly into their business processes, and GlobeSet and IBM have jointly delivered on those requirements.”
“Interoperability is a key component in the adoption of SET as a payment protocol,” said Mark Greene, vice president of Internet payments at IBM. “IBM’s work with GlobeSet and other companies in the Internet payment arena is designed to make the transition to SET as seamless as possible for consumers, merchants and financial institutions.”
GlobeSet is the only SET software vendor to offer guaranteed interoperability with other vendor products receiving a SET Mark. GlobeSet and IBM have made test versions of their respective payment products available on websites so any SET vendor can perform test functions between their respective applications and GlobeSet’s and IBM’s electronic wallet, merchant payment server, financial processor gateway and certificate authority applications.
In addition, both companies have made publicly available websites detailing the status of interoperability efforts between their suite of products and the SET vendor community.
