first_img 26SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Entering a PIN on a physical pad of numbered buttons has just surpassed being a 50-year old technology, created with the first ATMs. The current security requirements around PIN management and transmission, ISO 9564, dates to 1991.Today’s smartphone users are accustomed to tapping PINs on their screens, to unlock the phone and access mobile banking. But to make a debit transaction, the consumer still needs to press the buttons on the PIN pad. Security certification of dedicated hardware-based PIN pads assured that the PIN could not be compromised, and could be transmitted securely. “PIN on glass” implies entering PINs on many different phones, tablets, built-in screens on gas pumps, kiosks, etc. This represents a new challenge, because these screens are inherently software devices that potentially can be modified remotely, infiltrated by malware, or hijacked by fraudsters.There is definitely a market demand for PIN on glass. Self-service kiosks at quick-service restaurants, tablets at the table at casual sit-down restaurants that enable ordering and paying, next generation fuel pumps with touchscreen access, and the proliferation of self-checkout lanes at big box hardware stores and member clubs, all clamor for the ability to enter PIN on glass. continue reading »last_img read more

Koeman bemoans failure to sign Giroud

first_imgThe Dutch manager was fired on Monday, after a 5-2 home defeat to Arsenal on Sunday left Everton 18th in the table, with just eight points from their first nine games.And, although the club spent £140m in the summer, they also received around £90m for Lukaku alone, and Koeman told Dutch football magazine VI that a plan to replace the striker with Giroud fell through.“I had Olivier Giroud in the building,” said Koeman.“He would have fitted perfectly but, at the very last moment, he decided that he’d rather live in London and stay at Arsenal.“That was really hard to swallow. You tell me, where you can get a better striker?Everton manager Ronald Koeman during the side’s friendly match with Gor Mahia in Dar es Salaam Tanzania in July 2017. PHOTO/Timothy Olobulu“Lukaku was so important for us, not just because of his goals. If things were not going well in a game, if we could not play the way we were used to, there was always the option to use the long ball towards him.“All of a sudden, we were missing such a player. With Nikola Vlasic and Wayne Rooney, we had attackers who want the ball at their feet.”Everton were also handed a tough run of fixtures to start the season and, although they kicked off with a win over Stoke and a draw at Manchester City, losses to Chelsea, Tottenham and Manchester United followed.Koeman added: “I was on holiday when I received the Premier League fixture list by e-mail.“I looked at it and saw that five of our first nine games would be against clubs from last season’s top six: Chelsea, Tottenham, Man City, Man United and Arsenal.“I looked at it again and I said to myself, ‘Phew! That is not going to be an easy run, in particular with a Europa League run at the same time’. And, most of all, because I had lost my striker Lukaku.”-By Sky Sports-0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Arsenal’s striker Olivier Giroud celebrates scoring Arsenal’s fourth goal during the English Premier League football match against Leicester City at the Emirates Stadium in London on August 11, 2017LONDON, United Kingdom, Oct 26- Former Everton manager Ronald Koeman says that the seeds for his departure were sown when Arsenal forward Olivier Giroud decided against a move to Goodison Park.Giroud was seen as a player who could compensate for the loss of Romelu Lukaku and Koeman thinks the failure to adequately replace the Belgian forward, combined with a tough fixture list, sealed his fate.last_img read more
