Frequently Asked Question

The new name reflects an expanding standards program that will continue to incorporate other parts of the PIN based payment chain beyond PED and other physical devices. For example in April we introduced HSMs into the program. The new name more accurately reflects the greater variety of device and non device types that play a role in PIN transaction security.
