6 minute read


Digipass 875 is a Bluetoothenabled Smart card reader that enhances protection for any mobile transaction, including mobile banking, while delivering a transparent experience for users via instant Bluetooth connectivity from almost any device. Digipass 875 is both powerful and user-friendly, functioning as a sophisticated and secure PIN pad reader for two-factor authentication and electronic signing. The solution offers secure PIN entry features as well as intuitive “what you see is what you sign” user functionality

Today, more and more users are turning to their smartphones and tablets to conduct online transactions, including online banking. This delivers the ultimate in user convenience, but unfortunately, also provides a new attack vector for hackers and new avenues for fraud. Sophisticated attacks, such as man-in-the-middle and man-in-the-browser, mimic legitimate e-transaction sessions, while capturing card data or other sensitive information. By combining a secure smart card reader with OneSpan Mobile Security Suite, OneSpan now delivers powerful, portable and flexible two-factor authentication and digital signing, providing enhanced protection for any mobile transaction.

Bluetooth provides ultimate convenience

OneSpan’s Bluetooth smart devices create an immediate virtual secure connection between the authenticator and the mobile device, which means your mobile users don’t need to perform any additional tasks – like entering a password or plugging in a USB cable - to gain secure access to online applications and conduct transactions from their mobile devices.

Strong mobile security

DIGIPASS 875 delivers security guarantees on both sides of every transaction. With a Bluetooth connection, encryption features and a passkey, DIGIPASS 875 improves security of the data, and further enhances the level of protection with a dedicated secured channel.

Comprehensive platform support

Digipass 875 is a perfectly portable, Bluetooth Smart-enabled smart card reader solution for the mobile user. When connected to any mobile device, Digipass 875 functions as a sophisticated and secure PIN pad reader for two-factor authentication and digital signing, offering secure PIN entry features and intuitive “what you see is what you sign” user functionality. Digipass 875 supports multiple smart card formats, including EMV, PKI or eID, and supports smartphones and tablets across multiple mobile platforms, including iOS, Android, MAC OS X, and Windows. Digipass 875 can also operate in connected (Bluetooth or USB) or unconnected modes, with the Bluetooth connection based on the new standard 4.0 Low Energy.



Simple deployment, installation and use

Bluetooth-enabled mobile or tablet devices need to be paired with Digipass 875 before they can securely exchange information. OneSpan makes this simple for the user by requiring one action upon first use to exchange protected pairing codes. This improves user acceptance and ensures that only authorized wireless devices can connect with Digipass 875. Digipass 875 uses a standard driver that is compatible with all popular operating systems, including Windows, Linux and MacOS. Leveraging the available CCID driver, Digipass 875 does not require the installation of a separate driver on most of the popular pc platforms.

Purpose-built for high value environments

Digipass 875 is perfectly suited for environments with high security requirements including PKI/digital signatures, secure PIN verification, corporate network access, twofactor authentication (online banking), and e-commerce transactions. Digipass 875 can also be delivered with a wide variety of applications including MasterCard CAP, Visa Dynamic Passcode Authentication, Sm@rt TAN, and other domestic and proprietary schemes.

Digipass 875 deployment options

PKI, e-wallet or e-banking applications can be exposed to Trojans or key loggers if they rely simply on static PIN entry for smart card transactions, making static PIN entry unacceptable from a security point of view. Digipass 875 addresses the security demands required for mobile transactions by delivering additional security guarantees on both sides of every transaction. With a Bluetooth connection, encryption features and a passkey, Digipass 875 improves security of the data, and further enhances the level of protection with a dedicated secured channel.

Connected mode (Bluetooth and usb)

Digipass 875 supports secure pairing methods for iOS, Android, Windows 8 and Blackberry and can communicate with multiple hosts. Digipass 875 provides the secure advantage of entering the PIN directly at the reader, and the PIN is never available on the device.

Unconnected mode

When used in unconnected stand-alone mode, Digipass 875 offers the same functionality as other Digipass unconnected smart card readers, including two-factor authentication and e-signatures. Without the smart card, Digipass 875 supports two-factor authentication with one-time passwords, and additionally transaction integrity with electronic signatures.

On demand firmware updates

As an option, Digipass 875 supports firmware updates on demand. The Digipass 875 firmware and application can be updated by issuer at any time, even after the card reader has been issued to the user, by making use of proven and standard cryptographic mechanisms.
