What is EMV?
EMV stands for Europay, Mastercard and Visa. The three companies that created the standard.
EMV is a fraud-resistant, computer-chip credit card authentication protocol standard, designed to replace the magnetic stripe card authentication for point-of-sale terminals. Already adapted in Europe, Canada and the rest of the industrialized world, it became a compliance requirement in the United States in October 1, 2015 as a part of the Frank-Dodd act. All banks have up to three years to adopt this new standard of security to provide more security against credit card fraud.
EMV credit cards have a built-in chip that serves three main purposes:
- Store credit card data;
- Conduct transaction processing:
- Provide dynamic cryptographic authentication.
The most widely known chip card implementations of EMV standard are:
- VIS – Visa
- Master/Chip – MasterCard
- AEIPS – American Express
- UICS – China Union Pay
- J Smart – JCB
- D-PAS – Discover/Diners Club International.
