3-D Secure versions

Merchant action

Apply 3-D Secure processes across all affected payment use cases. Do not wait for 3-D Secure 2. Once 3-D Secure is applied by the merchant, the versioning update will be handled by us.

  • 3-D Secure 2 and 3-D Secure 1 are compliant to Regulatory Technical Standards (RTS) on Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) and secure communication under PSD2.
  • 3-D Secure 2 does enforce SCA and fully supports exemptions.
  • 3-D Secure 1 does not strictly enforce SCA and does not support exemptions. It is the only available fallback as long as 3-D Secure 2 is not broadly enrolled over the EEA regions by issuers, acquirers and other parties.

Background

The European Banking Authority (EBA) has launched the Payment Service Directive 2 (PSD2). It regulates all banks and financial institutions in the EEA (European Economic Area). Some of the PSD2 regulations have already come into effect (i.e. open banking, no surcharging). In this guideline we focus on the latest elements to be enforced: Regulatory Technical Standards (RTS), on Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) and secure communication under PSD2 in relation to Credit Cards schemes.

Goal
