DIGIPASS 920 offers high level security to banks to protect high value transactions. Its 'What You See is What You Sign' feature and reader signature ensures security is guaranteed at both ends of the transaction.

Increased identity and data theft, man-in-the-middle attacks, unauthorized access to confidential data demonstrate the growing need for secure solutions. VASCO® Data Security has a solid reputation in helping financial institutions in securing transactions online through two-factor authentication. With DIGIPASS® 920, VASCO offers a solution for environments requiring high level security.

DIGIPASS 920 is VASCO's USB connected card reader. It has a sophisticated user interface with a keypad with 14 keys and a full dot matrix display. DIGIPASS 920 operates as a PIN pad reader offering secure PIN entry and "What You See Is What You Sign" (WYSIWYS) functionality. With WYSIWYS data which need to be signed are displayed on the DIGIPASS 920 screen. The cardholder can verify them before confirming the transaction. DIGIPASS 920 can also generate its own signature next to the card-based signature. This way banks are able to verify whether the digital signature was made by a genuine reader, rather than a misused transparent reader. Hence, DIGIPASS 920 offers even a higher level of security and verification mechanisms to the bank especially when dealing with high value transactions.


See it before you sign it

DIGIPASS 920 has a full dot matrix display allowing extended data field validation on the DIGIPASS screen. The large screen sets a new standard for e-signature offering high transaction security thanks to the "what you see is what you sign" (WYSIWYS) capability. With WYSIWYS, the user will validate the key data on his DIGIPASS 920 display before he signs the transaction.

Reader signature

The bank which issues DIGIPASS 920 to its customers can verify that a transaction is approved and signed by his customer with a genuine card reader. When that same transaction is signed by an unauthorized reader it would have been rejected. As a result DIGIPASS 920 offers additional security guarantees on both sides of the transaction. The end-user can trust the data he digitally signed since they were displayed in the secure environment of a trusted reader.

Easy deployment, installation and use

DIGIPASS 920 uses a standard driver compliant with all popular operating systems such as Windows, Linux and MacOS. Leveraging the available CCID driver, DIGIPASS 920 does not require the installation of a separate driver on most of the popular PC platforms. The reader is not personalized and as a result can randomly be distributed to customers without compromising their security and benefitting deployment to large customer bases.

Firmware update

DIGIPASS 920 firmware and applications can be updated by the bank which issues the card reader at any time even when DIGIPASS 920 has already been issued to the end-user, making use of proven and standard cryptographic mechanisms.
