Transcript

  • 1. The State of eCommerce David Strom [email_address] (516) 944-3407 TISC Boston 11/12/1999
  • 2. Consider the shopper
    • Can’t find your store
    • Can’t find the right product
    • Can’t determine prices and shipping ahead of time
    • Can’t pay easily
    • Can’t get decent service and support
  • 3. Consider the developer
    • Poor quality of tools to build storefronts
    • Need to integrate several products for any solution
    • Have to deal with credit card snooping perceptions
    • And still have to satisfy customers!
  • 4. It is a wonder anyone can buy anything on the web!
    • BMW with page not found error
    • Gap missing any search function
    • Netmar payment screen confusing
    • Singapore jewelry directory outdated
  • 5. Rent, buy, or build your store
    • Rent : outsource to a CSP
    • Buy suite of software
    • Build it yourself
  • 6. The cold hard reality of suites
    • Suites are nothing more than collection of products
    • Lack integration among various elements
    • Difficult to setup, customize, and use
    • Require you to live “inside” their structure
    • Limited payment options
    • Sounds like early MS Office
  • 7. Trends
    • Suites will get better, but no one will really care
    • Rental options will continue to get cheaper and more functional
    • Web/database integration still difficult problem that suites are ignoring
    • Backoffice integration still difficult problem but getting better
  • 8. Technology status report
    • SSL vs. SET
    • eWallets
    • eCommerce hosting providers
    • Payment providers
  • 9. SSL vs. SET
    • SSL
    • Server authentication
      • Merchant certificate as legitimate business
    • Possible for client authentication
      • Not tied to payment method
    • Privacy
      • Encrypted message to merchant includes account number
    • Integrity
      • Message authenticity check
    • SET
    • Server authentication
      • Merchant certificate tied to accept payment brands
    • Customer authentication
      • Digital certificate tied to certain payment method
    • Privacy
      • Encrypted message does not pass account number to merchant
    • Integrity
      • Hash/message envelope
  • 10. SET issues
    • Implementation of SET has some big drawbacks:
      • Lack of interoperability among systems
      • Management of public key infrastructure
      • Distribution of digital certificates requires action on the part of the consumer
      • Will banks want to become cert authorities?
    • And who will pay for all this?
    • Meanwhile, eCommerce goes on
  • 11. The future of SET
    • Non-repudiation of transactions through digital certificates for both merchant and customer
    • SET may be the industry standard for payments, but yet to be implemented
    • It will be far more difficult for a customer to claim no knowledge of a transaction
    • Demonstrations continue
  • 12. Some problems with eWallets
    • Not transferable to other wallets
    • Tied to a single PC
    • Not available for use at many web storefronts
    • Just solve a small part of the overall payment process
    • And they just don’t work!
  • 13. Trends
    • eWallets will eventually go away
    • SET becomes a server-side issue
    • SSL still dominates eCommerce transactions for many years
  • 14. Interoperability is the key
    • Wallets will become widely used when the following events occur:
      • Mass distribution of wallets to consumers is easily made
      • Will be accepted by all merchants, regardless of wallet brand or payment brand
      • Don’t require PKI knowledge or computing expertise
  • 15. Turnkey eCommerce hosting providers
    • GeoShop/Yahoo
    • ViaWeb/Yahoo
    • iCat
    • Shopsite/Open Market
    • iTool
    • Shopzone
    • Encanto
  • 16. What they have in common
    • Relatively easy to setup simple storefronts
    • Relatively difficult to setup anything else!
    • Payments, order processing still mostly a manual effort
    • Limited catalog and page controls
    • But good to learn about eCommerce!
  • 17. Case study: Encanto
    • Started out selling hardware appliance
    • Now sells eCommerce hosting services and gives away the box
    • Will they make it on monthly fees?
    • Best explanation of payment process around but took it off their web site!
  • 18. The state of payment systems
    • Today the vast majority of web payments are with SSL forms and credit cards
    • Many new directions for payments, but still far from general acceptance
    • Banks at odds with software developers
  • 19. Remember the old payment providers?
    • Digicash
    • Cybercash (first generation)
    • First Virtual
    • Mondex
    • GlobeID
  • 20. Why didn’t they work?
    • Too complex to implement
    • Too much cumbersome infrastructure
    • Not too many stores took their kind of money
    • Too many other technical challenges
    • Solved the wrong problem first (credit card snooping)
  • 21. Today’s sessions
    • Choosing the right payment provider
    • New alternatives to PKI for authentication
    • Securing and integrating web and database servers
    • Web switching and caching
    • Preventing cyberfraud
    • PKI application implications

  • 23. Session 1: Choosing the right eCommerce payment provider Christy Hudgins-Bonafield Brian Boesch, Cybercash David Strom, David Strom Inc.
  • 24. Why use any payment system?
    • Automate existing business practice (POs, procurement, supply chain, etc.)
    • Non-human transactions, businss-to-business
  • 25. Three choices
    • Outsource everything (Evergreen, BofA, Amazon zShops)
    • Use Cybercash online system
    • Use PC POS (Tellan, PC Authorize)
  • 26. Issues
    • Real time or batch authorization
    • Real time or batch capture/posting of transactions
    • Fraud detection
    • Whether or not physical goods are involved
    • Scalability, reliability
    • Where and how customer account data is stored
  • 27. Diversity issues
    • Shopping carts used to keep track of sessions vs. committed order processing
    • Rich reporting tools, backup, management, history/log
    • Open interfaces to extract information and use across different legacy payment models
  • 28. Three different levels of security
    • Transaction level
    • Session level
    • Membership and directory level
  • 29. What is the goal?
    • To safeguard user identity and payment information
    • Across all transactions, sessions, and wherever membership information is stored
    • And to ensure that accurate transactions occur!
  • 30. Transaction level security
    • Identity must be coupled with transactions
    • Transactions must be persistent and grouped for optimal payment authorization and processing
  • 31. Session level security
    • Identity must be constantly verified during eCommerce session and especially when transactions committed for payment authorization.
    • Cookies, tokens, SSL
  • 32. Membership level security
    • Persistent way to store identity and payment methods.
    • Must be secure – or face legal consequences!
    • Critical for business-to-business automation
    • Must leverage existing business PO authorization systems
  • 33. All of these are tied to your shopping cart
    • Usually, cart processes payments and sends to banking network
    • Demonstration from Perfectotech.com
    • strom.com/pubwork/ecommerce/testcart.htm
  • 34. Session 2: Authentication alternatives for secure eCommerce David Strom (516) 944-3407

    • Are they really secure? (Perception vs. reality)
  • 36. Current authentication methods

    • Database logins
    • Certs and PKI infrastructure
  • 37. Do you really want to do this?
