The company ATOS Worldline has given the green light to our new parking ticket machine with ATOS card reader, Citea, after it had successfully passed the required authorisation procedure.
It has been confirmed that all test steps regarding the mechanical implementation of the ATOS card readers XENOA and XENTEO (with PinPad), and also the functionality of the software according to country-specific requirements in the Netherlands were carried out correctly and according to the regulations.
With effect from 1st June 2015, Citea with its integrated ATOS readers will be formally registered as accredited and approved. In practice this means that the entire payment process, from inserting the card in the machine to submitting the transaction to the bank, fulfills the specific security criteria and therefore possesses a high degree of robustness against attempted manipulation. Several Citeas with integrated ATOS readers have already proved their efficiency on the streets of the Netherlands.
