An in-depth look at PSD2

1. PSD2 in a nutshell

PSD2 is short for the Payment Services Directive (version) 2. It refers to a body of legislation that was intended to create a safer and more competitive payment landscape across Europe.

2. What is SCA?

Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) is one of the requirements of PSD2. Its aim is to make online and (contactless) offline payments more secure. It asks merchants to add at least 2 of the following 3 authentication pathways into their online checkout:

Ask the customer for information they KNOW
( e.g a password )
Something the
customer HAS
( e.g a hardware token )
Ask the customer to prove who they ARE
( e.g a fingerprint or face ID ) 3ds2 security representation

What is an SCA exemption?

3DS2 applies security checks based on the perceived risk of a transaction so your regular customers are not inconvenienced by time-consuming security checks. Here’s how it works:

• The system decides how risky the transaction is based on the amount being spent and whether the shopper is known to your store

• Regular/familiar customers and those spending an expected amount are “exempted” from extra security measures

• Only unfamiliar customers, large sums and suspicious behavior is subject to more stringent checks.

What is 3DS2?

3D Secure 2 (3DS2) is the updated security protocol that was formerly 3D Secure 1 (3DS1). Here’s what you need to know:

• It protects customers shopping online with a credit or debit card

• It uses a secure three-way authentication process to confirm the buyer’s identity.

• It performs as many security checks as possible in the background so the customer gets a smoother shopping experience. SCA security representation
