Triton Anti-Skimming for Dip or Motorized Card Readers
A skimmer is malicious hardware attached to an ATM, cunningly hidden or camouflaged so it remains unnoticed, designed to capture card-holder data (such as a card’s magnetic stripe) for fraudulent use by a criminal at a later time. Reports of skimmers are ever increasing, and ATMs must be protected from these attacks.
New anti-skimming Security Features
Skimmers mounted to the card reader are detected. The ATM automatically goes out of service, logs the event in its journal, and advises Triton Connect. When the skimmer is removed, the ATM automatically recovers.
MAGNETIC FIELD INTERFERENCE
A jamming signal is emitted to disrupt a skimmer’s reading of a magnetic stripe.
ENCRYPTION AT MAGNETIC HEAD
Magnetic stripes are encrypted at the very first point at which they are read, defending against a skimmer inside the ATM’s cabinet.
ENCRYPTION OF EMV CHIP CARD APDU
Data exchanged with an EMV chip card is encrypted on the card reader’s cable, defending against a skimmer inside the ATM’s cabinet.
