The Future of Credit-Card Security May Involve Blinking Numbers

The Future of Credit-Card Security May Involve Blinking Numbers (New Cyber Technologies)

French digital security company Oberthur Technologies, which maintains a significant design and production operation in Los Angeles, has developed a digital display powered by a micro-thin battery. It will change the three or four-digit CVV number — that stands for credit verification value — on the back of credit and debit cards as often as 72 times every 24 hours. Oberthur’s Motion Code technology promises relief to U.S. merchants who haven’t exactly embraced the most recent technology upgrade — security chips built into credit cards. “There is a constant balancing act between security and simplicity,” said Martin Ferenczi, Oberthur’s president for North America operations. “Motion Code solves this better than any other option.”
