Title: Protocol and Interface Testing with the Conclusion Test Platform
Collis is an ICT-company based in the Netherlands. Established in 1997, Collis currently employs over 140 people globally, with a recently opened subsidiary in Singapore. Collis employees come from Dutch and international backgrounds. Collis focuses on software testing in different areas, mostly focused on electronic transaction systems, like payment, healthcare, e-identification and public transport. Besides testing services we are also a knowledge provider in the mentioned areas.
The presentation will focus on the area of the payment industry. During the last years fraud with financial transactions became a big issue, as you might have heard in the media and maybe even experienced in real life. The financial industry found the solution to this problem, however implementation is still under way, that explains why we still use the same magnetic stripe cards from a few years ago. All the banks in the Netherlands (and a lot of banks abroad) are currently migrating their systems to support the new secure standards. We will start with an introduction of the current situation in the payment industry, explain the (new) standards and how
they improve security. Of course all these changes have to be tested, which can be done by various Test Suites which run on top of the Collis Conclusion Test Platform of which you will get a demonstration.
