Host Card Emulation (HCE): How to take direct control of mobile payments

This on-demand webinar from David Worthington (Principle Consultant Payment & Chip Technology at Bell ID) and Ian Hermon (Product Marketing Manager Payments Security at Thales e-Security) will explain more about the HCE payment solutions from personal experience and how issuers can get involved. 

For the past few years the desire by issuers to launch contactless mobile payment solutions has been hampered for a number of reasons – third party ownership of the secure element, need for new complex business relationships/contracts and availability of compatible mobile phones top the list of potential barriers. The incremental cost to support secure elements as well as companion credit/debit cards made the business case questionable for issuers.

A recent update to the Android operating system has changed things forever – no longer does an issuer need a secure element in the mobile phone or a third party to provision the application to offer a secure mobile payment solution compatible with all NFC contactless point-of-sale (POS) terminals. A technology known as host card emulation (HCE) enables issuers to take direct control and fast track time to market.

This webinar from David Worthington (Principle Consultant Payment & Chip Technology at Bell ID) and Ian Hermon (Product Marketing Manager Payments Security at Thales e-Security) will explain more about the HCE payment solutions from personal experience and how issuers can get involved, including:

  • An HCE technology overview
  • How the payments are secured
  • Benefits achieved by early adopters
  • Insight into how HCE is likely to evolve
