Technical Challenges in Designing CPoC and SPoC Solutions

Date: Wednesday, 27 October

Presented by: David McGregor, Lab Manager, PCI Accredited Lab, UL

After evaluating a number of CPoC and SPoC solutions, UL has observed a number of common issues. This talk discusses some of the more problematic SPoC/CPoC requirements and potential solutions.
  • Application layer cryptography, not relying upon TLS
  • Key provisioning using forward secrecy
  • Key storage and processing
  • Local vs. remote attestation
  • Random number generation
  • Detecting ADB and developer options
