Keypad Credit Card – PIN, Chip, Passcode, Sign and Hurry…?

The Keypad Credit Card – aka Embedded Authentication Device – is…well a credit card with a built-in number pad. Why? Well…um…perhaps because they can? The company’s last effort along these lines was a credit card with a password screen, which also seemed a little redundant. We would have thought that a PIN number, signature strip, encrypted chip, security strip number and card number was enough for most people. Maybe they’re just a tad more paranoid than we are?

 For example, a user can enter his or her secret PIN into the card’s keypad to receive a numeric passcode for one-time use. To authorize a banking transaction, the passcode is entered into an interface and instantly validated by an authentication server. This process removes the need to enter a PIN into an unsecure device such as a web browser and provides a user-friendly defense against electronic banking fraud…
