J/Secure technology is easy to implement and is compliant with the 3-D Secure(tm) protocol. JCB issuer and acquirer partners have a range of technology choices for launching the J/Secure program, and JCB can provide design and implementation support . Currently more than 15 access control server (ACS) or merchant server plug-in (MPI) products have passed J/Secure compliance testing, with more to follow. A comprehensive list of compliant products will soon be available on the JCB Global Web site at The Web site also provides specification download service and the J/Secure logo to J/Secure program partners. More than 15 partners have already committed to implement the J/Secure program to provide cardmembers and e-commerce merchants with a high level of security for the online shopping environment. Several partners, such as LG Card Co., Ltd. in Korea and AEON Credit Service Co., Ltd. in Japan will launch the J/Secure service in April and May 2004 respectively.
