Emerging devices and channels offer tremendous opportunities for payments innovation, but data security continues to be a limiting factor. Consumer devices are notorious for poorly-conceived data safeguards. Even when secure hardware is available, it is often difficult, costly, or impractical to use. Many software alternatives, such as white-box cryptography, impose other logistical challenges without the same degree of security as hardware solutions.
Virtual trusted execution environments offer a unique software-based alternative to isolated hardware components, enabling developers to separate sensitive data and processes from the rest of the device even on devices that lack secure hardware.
In this webinar, we will discuss:
- What are the benefits and drawbacks of current approaches to isolating data and processes?
- How do current security technologies limit adoption of new payment channels?
- How do standards out of organizations like PCI-SSC and EMVCo impact organizations choices of data security methods?
- What opportunities do virtual TEEs offer for securing financial data?
