EMV® 3-D Secure

EMV® 3-D Secure (EMV 3DS) helps payment card issuers and merchants around the world prevent card-not-present (CNP) fraud and increase the security of e-commerce payments.


The airline industry has always looked to prevent fraud and better protect its customers. The EMV 3DS protocol helps make internet card payments more secure, while achieving a better balance between security and customer convenience by letting the card issuer know more details about the intended purchase.
