PCI compliance essential for kiosk operators13, the PCI SSC published guidelines for developers, merchants and payment solutions providers using consumer mobile technologies for payment acceptance. In a Kiosk Marketplace blog post and infographic, mobile security developer Moki Mobility examined these guidelines' implications for iPad and Android tablet-based kiosks. A mobile payments app running inside a kiosk needs to indicate to the end user during the payments process that it is in a secure state, for example by displaying a green checkmark, according to PCI SSC guidelines. Moki said a number of factors go into the determination of the secure state, such as whether or not the mobile device has been jail-broken, whether any peripherals have changed, whether the app configuration has been altered, and whether the device is running the correct version of the app. Jail-breaking refers to the highly insecure practice of circumventing the operating system controls set up by the device's manufacturer, so that unapproved apps can run on the device. "When a mobile device is jail-broken, there are opportunities for malware to take control of it," Gumbley said. "The problem with mobile apps is that the security solutions for mobile devices aren't as mature as those developed for desktop PCs. This means there is significant potential for criminal exploitation of mobile app security vulnerabilities." Moki said in its blog that, in order to be PCI-compliant, a tablet-based kiosk must be continually monitored for any suspicious changes to its payments solution.…
Digital signage software provider Omnivex Corp. recently announced the release of the newest version of its enterprise software, Omnivex Moxie. Moxie 6.11 provides new tools designed to reduce the time required to develop complex content and controls for kiosk applications, the company said. Moxie's wizards let users add sophisticated logic to their design without any coding or scripting, according to Omnivex. Users can also place multiple levels of content within other content, so they can design their own widgets and templates for re-use in multiple designs. Since design assets can be data dependent, users can produce a single design that will customize itself automatically for each location, significantly reducing time and labor, the company said. Also featured in Moxie 6.11 is a new video control feature for media that support kiosk applications, allowing customers to control viewing of video files at their own pace independent of any other media players that are running. Designers can decide which controls to expose, where to place them, and what form they should take. The Moxie sync service has been extended to allow multiple servers to share content and data based on requirements. This allows organizations to support independent departments or organizations with common and independent assets based on their business needs. It also allows them to take in third-party file contributions automatically, along with metadata governing its use and placement, Omnivex said.…
