- The concept
- Fight fraud and phishing!
Todos has developed security solutions based on smart cards
since 1990. Throughout the years, Todos has built up an
extensive in-house expertise in designing cost efficient
identification solutions for the mass market, with focus on
the product, its personalisation, distribution and support.
Todos eCode is a product portfolio for secure
remote authentication using One Time Passwords
(OTP), Challenge/Response and Electronic Signatures.
The OTPs can be generated by a reader and a smart
card, tokens, printed cards or mobile phones.
Todos eCode is a cost efficient, portable and
secure authentication solution for e-Banking,
e-Commerce, Online Shopping with 3-D Secure,
Mobile Banking and Enterprise access. Todos eCode
is platform and channel independent, providing
the possibility to simultaneously authenticate users
via Internet, PSTN, mobile network and VPN.
The end user devices in the eCode solution
are all easy to learn and easy to use. Also, it is easy
to manage for the bank as the devices require no
personalisation. Thus, they are easy and cheap to
distribute and have minimal need for support.
The Todos eCode solution can be introduced Mobile
gradually, with different security levels, to suit the Token
development pace of remote services in the bank.

authentication method, security, reliability, availability, capacity and integration to its legacy systems. The modularity
and flexibility of the eCode Central System enables it to be fully customized to meet customer requirements. VISA
