Simple and secure authentication for payment service providers

On 14 September 2019 the second Payment Service Directive (PSD2) will come into effect.  With A-Trust, Austria's leading Trust Center and market leader for certificates, you can implement the new EU Directive in a simple, timely and above all secure manner.


PSD2 is geared towards banks, application developers, alternative payment service providers and Fintech companies operating as payment service providers in account management, payment initiation, account information and the issuing of card-based payment instruments. The Europe-wide online payment transactions are thereby liberalized and third-party providers receive access to the account of the user or payment information, after the user's consent.

Get acquainted with the certificate solution from A-Trust, secure communication via web interface when accessing accounts and explicit and legally secure authentication with A-Trust certificates:  Whether with the digital company seal (a.sign Seal qualified PSD2) or as a qualified SSL certificate supporting PSD2 (a.sign SSL qualified PSD2), A-Trust has the perfect solution for your business!
