PSD2 TRA & SCA Compliance

Ensure compliance with the most demanding digital banking regulation



The new payments service directive, which was adopted by the EU parliament in October 2015 came into force by September 2019, set out to enhance three major areas in the payment landscape: customer protection, innovation, and security.

Security is being supplemented mainly by the Regulatory Technical Standards (RTS) on strong customer authentication (SCA) and common and secure open standards of communication (CSC).

The main objectives are:

  • Strong Customer Authentication
  • Transaction and Device Monitoring
  • Provision of standardized and secure interface for access to payment accounts (e. g. API)

With PSD2 Payment service providers are required to perform strong customer authentication for any action connected with a payment’s account. The authentication shall be based at least on two elements, categorized as knowledge, possession, and inherence, resulting in the generation of an authentication code.

As a result, payment service providers are now facing a dilemma between providing secure authentication and not jeopardizing the customer’s experience.
