CrontoSign, an efficient technological tool

crontosign     Modern and efficient, CrontoSign meets all the criteria to guarantee proven security for your Netbanking transactions (authentication and payment signature).

Advantages of CrontoSign

  • Systematic validation of non-recurring payments and payment data control means even greater transaction reliability. This is not possible with the grid card.
  • It operates without an internet connection or telephone link, making it more practical for users than the SMS Connect system. Simple to use, CrontoSign will operate from anywhere in the world.
  • Can be used on several smartphones and covers several Netbanking contracts.
  • No limitation on use (no renewal).
  • Either a smartphone (CrontoSign application) or an optical reader can be used.

How does CrontoSign work?

The use of CrontoSign is based on mosaic scanning. The application instantly generates a code which, once it is keyed into Netbanking, validates the authentication or the payment. This new process enables log-in data and orders to be encrypted in a coloured mosaic which cannot be falsified. The data contained in the mosaic and the associated validation code are decrypted using the CrontoSign application or reader and is displayed on the screen.
The mosaic generated is unique to each operation and to each user.
