Pull requests and issues are welcome.

8.1. November 11th, 2020

  1. Update list of supported card schemes

  2. Clarify that cardholderName must be ASCII

  3. Mention that browserColorDepth is not always valid by specifiction, provide solution

  4. Update preauth timeout that has been changed from 30, to 80 seconds.

  5. Improve text in threeDSRequestorChallengeInd description in reference.

  6. The sandbox has historically handled Base64-URL encoding wrong, since it has required the CReq values received to include padding, while allowing both with and without padding for the 3DS Method input.

    EMVCo has clarified that Base64-URL encoding must not include padding. Currently for both CReq and 3DS Method, padding is allowed but not required. In January 2021, the sandbox will be changed to disallow padding, requests that include padding will then fail.

    It is suggested that you remove padding the mentioned requests at your leisure, but sooner rather than later.

    The pages described both the challenge flow and 3DS Method has been updated to mention that padding is not allowed.

    Your system should be able to receive messages both with and without padding, until further updates from EMVCo. Currently the sandbox uses padding in the challenge responses (CRes) messages. This will be true until January, to ensure that your systems are compatible and don’t reject messages with padding.
