Based on the latest EMV® 3-D Secure Specification, this new web-based test platform provides an environment where product providers, PSPs, merchants and issuers can perform tests, while they are building and enhancing their 3-D Secure components.

About EMV 3-D Secure
EMV 3-D Secure is a messaging protocol that enables consumers to authenticate themselves with their card issuers when making card-not-present (CNP) purchases or verifying their identity for various non-payment activities, like adding a payment card to a digital wallet. The exchange of data between the merchant using 3-D Secure and a card issuer to authenticate a cardholder reduces the risk of fraud.
