TSS and Thales; Working Together to achieve Compliance and Efficiency

The cost of ATM ownership and the complexity of meeting compliance standards is only going one direction – UP! ATM owners can take a major stab at reducing these two headaches by implementing remote key loading (also called remote key transport or remote key distribution). Remote key loading takes advantage of the ATM’s native ability to receive authenticated messages from the host, developing a “trusted path,” so that a unique terminal master key can pass in a secure method directly from the host to the ATM. With remote key, there is no longer a requirement for two key custodians to physically visit the ATM when a key change is needed.
