The Private Area of the site adopts a strong customer authentication mechanism (SCA – Strong Customer Authentication) to access your account on-line, to make an electronic payment transaction and in any other action, through a remote channel, which may involve a risk of payment fraud or other abuse. The Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) is based on verification of at least two different factors, independent of each other, to verify the identity of a user. Factors can belong to the following categories:
  • Knowledge: something that only the user knows (e.g. password);
  • Possession: something that only the user owns (e.g. smartphone);
  • Personal: something that characterises the user (e.g. fingerprint).
To access the Private Area and to authorise transactions, you will always need the following access data on hand:
  • Customer code: this is the code that was sent to you via e-mail on opening the account;
  • Password: this is the code requested on first time access to the current account and received by sms;
  • OTP Codes (One Time Password): these are temporary unique codes that are generated through Secure Call, necessary to access or authorise transaction instructions (e.g. SEPA On-line Transfers, MAV and RIBA).
Furthermore, Dynamic Linking is an additional safety feature introduced by recent sector regulations to protect payment transactions on-line. The OTP code is generated uniquely based on the transaction data (e.g. Amount, Execution Date and IBAN, etc.). This OTP, called transactional OTP, will allow you to authorise only that one particular transaction.
