RSA Adaptive Authentication for eCommerce is a comprehensive authentication and fraud detection solution for the eCommerce market. The solution is based on the 3DSecure protocol (Verified by Visa and Mastercard SecureCode) and is powered by risk-based authentication, an intelligent system that authenticates a user by measuring a series of risk indicators. Transparent authentication provides a user-experience in which a customer is only challenged in high-risk scenarios.


What's New in Adaptive Authentication for eCommerce 19.6

The following enhancements are included in Adaptive Authentication for eCommerce 19.6.


EMV 3DS Support

Support for transactions that use the EMV 3DS protocol. The Back Office applications include a transaction type indicator. The transaction type is based on the 3DS protocol version, and whether the transaction generated from a browser or a native application. The transaction type can be:

  • Browser Based (1.0)
  • Browser Based (2.0)
  • Application Based (2.0)


This table describes the ways in which the transaction type affects the Back Office applications. For more information about these changes, see the Back Office User Guide.
