PAX Remote Key Injection (RKI) allows merchants to automatically, quickly and safely complete the injection of PIN protection keys and payment terminal messages at the point of sale.
This means that payment terminals can be sent directly from the manufacturer, acquirer or payment service provider to the merchant and be connected to the payment system, request a unique key, receive the key injection remotely in complete security directly at the point of sale.
A PCI P2PE certified RKI solution such as the solution offered by PAX Technology also saves customers time and money in implementing payment solutions, as they will not need to submit the necessary security mechanisms to PCI certification.
Remote Key Injection vs Local Key Injection
Remote key injection offers a faster and safer alternative to the traditional manual key injection process in a secure room, as terminals no longer move to-and-from a physical Key Injection facility. During the Local key injection process the keys are injected manually at a specific facility (KIF – Key Injection Facility) and this leads to longer delivery times, as well as higher shipping and administration costs.
Benefits of PAX RKI:
- Forget the complexities and exorbitant costs of setting up and maintaining your own secure room and server equipment.
- Save on training specialized personnel and employing mandatory re-certifications.
- Reduce shipping and administrative costs with the move from a traditional Key Injection Facility (KIF).
- Conveniently, quickly and securely deploy key injection from anywhere, at anytime.
