Egg, the UK's leading online bank and a member of Citi, became the U.K.'s first Internet-only bank in 1998. Personal Identification Numbers (PINs) are increasingly used to authenticate customers and authorize credit card transactions, such as ATM withdrawals or retail purchases. SafeNet's award-winning PIN management platform ViewPIN+ perfectly suited the challenge. With its hardware-based application security module, ViewPIN+ would offer hardware key management, and would ensure that cryptographic keys and processes were, at all times, stored and managed exclusively within FIPS-validated hardware.
