#1: If I fry my chip will I be asked to sign? (chip and pin)

Posted on 2006-07-16 22:27:05 by Dave

What happens if you chip stops working (chip and pin), can you still
buy goods without a PIN? If so, what is to stop a criminal frying a
chip by applying excessive voltage on the connections (or microwaving
it?) to put it out of action? Will the criminal they be able to buy
with a signature?

The card should report an error message 'contact your bank'.
It might still work in places where the magnetic strip is used to process a
transaction eg cash machines.

Only if the card is used in a CHIP environment. If used at an ATM it is
more than likely that the card (fall back to magstrip) can still be
used with PIN to withdraw cash.

In a shop who uses magstrip verification the the card can still be used
with a signature.

&gt;From a liability perspective and if you never wish to use your credit
card to withdraw cash - Bin your PIN - No disputed transactions to
worry about and you probably wont be targettted for your 'PIN' by
fraudsters.

BIN your PIN! - Absolutlely - Get yourself a Chip &amp; Signature card
instead.

Procedure (for the benefit of others). Chipped card is entered into
Chip Reader (PIN pad).

Chip is read. (At this point Chip &amp; PIN cardholders enter their PIN -
but).

A transaction slip is produced for the Cardhodler to Sign (as is safer,
as reduces cardholder liability).

I've been using Chip &amp; Signature cards now from the outset (after 15
Feb), with no problems.

It's clearly easier to prove you didn't produce a particular signature
than it is to prove the PIN number entered wasn't entered by you, or by
someone you had revealed it to.

Your liability in either case (if found guilty, or innocent) is the
same, however your chances of proving 'it wasn't me' are much better
with a signature. Even proving you were elsewhere will do (even the
tackiest banks have not yet postulated the concept of 'passing on your
signature for someone else to use').

Absolutley true, but what is also absolutely true is that the FOS has
been inundated with cases of PIN based fraud, where victims are being
treated as criminals.

Why be held responsible for something that you need not have - a PIN?

It's your choice PIN or Sign

Doesn't matter, the cardholders have already paid significant
penalties, you may say it makes a difference if you pay 1000 in being
liable, or 1000 in lost time fighting the case, but I don't.

&gt;Don't be silly. They're not being locked up are they?

Not all criminals are locked up.

Yes, that statement is true. But /you/ are the only one supposed to
know your PIN -- so you are open to accusations of carelessness or
deliberate divulging of it, either of which would make you liable. That
is not true of a signature.

From a purely technical pov, the liability issues are the same - but
there are extra avenues open to the banks to make life difficult for the
punter.

Which won't stop the banks being difficult, and needing extra effort to

But this has been regularly discussed lately; no agreement reached; and,
as they say, the music goes around and around.....

(note my smiley earlier) I think most maths people would claim &quot;two&quot; and
&quot;four&quot; can exist without stones, and just require a small set of axioms.
Anyway, can you prove -2+2 = 0 with stones?

&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; It's also clearly easier to prove that 2+2=4, than it is to prove that
&gt;&gt; Pi is a little over 3.1 -- but neither this nor your point are actually
&gt;&gt; relevant. The cardholder's liability is the same whether you have
&gt;&gt; Sig or PIN, the law &amp; Banking Code have not changed there.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; &quot;GSV Three Minds in a Can&quot; wrote
&gt;&gt;&gt; Your liability in either case (if found guilty, or innocent) is the
&gt;&gt; same,...
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; Glad you agree!
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; &quot;GSV Three Minds in a Can&quot; wrote
&gt;&gt;&gt; ... however your chances of proving
&gt;&gt;&gt; 'it wasn't me' are much better with a signature.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; *You* don't have to prove anything!
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; &quot;GSV Three Minds in a Can&quot; wrote
&gt;&gt;&gt; Even proving you were elsewhere will do...
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; Which you could do just as easily if the fraudster used a PIN!
&gt;
&gt; I get that deja vu feeling......
&gt;
&gt; Yes, that statement is true. But /you/ are the only one supposed to know
&gt; your PIN -- so you are open to accusations of carelessness or deliberate
&gt; divulging of it, either of which would make you liable. That is not true
&gt; of a signature.
&gt;
&gt; From a purely technical pov, the liability issues are the same - but there
&gt; are extra avenues open to the banks to make life difficult for the punter.
&gt;
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; &quot;GSV Three Minds in a Can&quot; wrote
&gt;&gt;&gt; (even the tackiest banks have not yet postulated the concept
&gt;&gt;&gt; of 'passing on your signature for someone else to use').
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; And also the courts have *not* agreed that &quot;use
&gt;&gt; of a PIN by a fraudster proves the cardholder
&gt;&gt; acted fraudulently or without reasonable care.&quot;
&gt;
&gt; Which won't stop the banks being difficult, and needing extra effort to
&gt; make them back down.
&gt;
&gt; But this has been regularly discussed lately; no agreement reached; and,
&gt; as they say, the music goes around and around.....

I can tell you that from early next month any credit card or debit card that
is chip and pin enabled will be refused at ATM's if the machine cannot read
the chip.
This will not of course apply to cashpoint cards only.

&gt; How does it know if the card is C&amp;P enabled?

The service code on the mag stripe indicates the presence of a chip.
No, it's not impossible to change this; indeed, it's the work of a few
seconds with a few pounds' worth of equipment. It all depends on
whether the track data itself is sent to the issuer for authentication;
this would eliminate that as a means of attack.

However, all the above still means nothing if the card is taken abroad
to a machine without a chip reader.

Why not simply have a new question

&quot;Are you a criminal? Yes / No...&quot;

Because, of course, all criminals
