What is PIN on Glass?
PIN on Glass is the name for Software-based PIN entry on COTS (Commercial-Off-The-Shelf). It is intended to preserve security while streamlining merchant experience when a payment acceptance solution relies on:
- A standard mobile device (smartphone or tablet).
- A software PIN-entry solution app on the device using the touchscreen for PIN entry.
- A Secure Card Reader-PIN (SCRP) attached to the mobile device, which has to be tested as PCI PTS compliant not PCI SpoC.
- Back-end systems and environments that perform attestation, monitoring, payment and online PIN processing.
