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 users by measuring a series of risk indicators. Transparent authentication provides a user-experience in which customers are only challenged in high-risk scenarios.



Version 16.7 introduces the following functional, technical and documentation enhancements:



Removal of ECI Codes from the Web Reports Application


In order to simplify the usability of the Web Report Application, the ECI code is not displayed in the web reports. RSA continues to provide the ECI code according to the 3DS protocol definition.



Service Applications updated to reflect industry updates


The service has been adjusted to conform to changes by financial instutions and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). A number of country names have been updated, for example cape verde has been changed to cabo verde. An example of a currency change is that of the Unidad de Fomento, issued by the Central Bank of Chile, where the minor unit has changed from 0 to 4.



Device Fingerprint Collection


An enhanced set of attributes is collected from the consumer device for further analysis by RSA. Future adjustments to the risk model are expected after the data is analyzed.



Enhanced Chargeback Data Process


Enhancements have been made that improve the speed and efficiency of the chargeback data processing and transfer.



New Raw Data Report for Risk Contributors


A new Raw Data Report is available that displays the main contributors for the assessed risk. The filename of the new Raw Data Report is CaseDetails_<date in format MMDDYY>.txt. For example, CaseDetails_122814.txt.



Security Enhancements


The overall security of the service is enhanced with the addressing of several security-related issues, including the


level of protection provided to sensitive data.



Documentation Set Enhancements


The following enhancement to the documentation set is provided in this release:
