3D Secure Credit Card Validation

Magento Open Source includes the option to use 3D Secure authentication for payment transactions made with Authorize.Net. Cardinal Centinel® is the company that provides the 3D Secure Credit Card Validation service.

During checkout, the customer is prompted to enter a secret code that is assigned to the card, which is then used to confirm the identity of the cardholder. The bank also provides additional data elements to confirm the cardholder’s identity. The service provider arranges the communication between the banks and payment systems. 3D Secure authentication can be used for orders placed from the store, or from the Admin.
