T-Systems GEI GmbH has evaluated Diebolds new EPP4.0 encrypted PIN pad for automated teller machines (ATMs) and found it conforms to ZKA specifications. Diebold is one of only a few manufacturers to have its product tested by T-Systems Laboratories, the leading German testing organization.Encrypted PIN pads (EPPs) are secure devices that protect a consumers PIN once it is entered at an ATM. EPPs are not new but have received more attention recently due to increased consumer awareness of ATM security. Having an independent testing entity such as T-Systems verify the integrity of the EPP4.0 is an important step for Diebold. The companys EPP4.0 conforms to stringent security requirements set by the ZKA. Germany has long been on the forefront of demanding security at ATMs as well as in other financial transaction arenas. ZKA specifications and standards address many of the security requirements of ATM networks.
