The global settlement system, WebMoney Transfer is launching an updated version of the E-NUM authentication service which will be available for use by owners of websites supporting a two-factor authentication system.
Cambridge, United Kingdom, August 19, 2015 –(PR.com)– Over the past few years participants of the WebMoney system have been actively using the E-NUM application which generates one-time passwords in order to improve the safety of transactions.
A new interface of the official E-NUM website simplifies the mobile application installation process allowing immediate use of the service.
The authentication process is based on the “challenge-response” method: the E-NUM mobile application receives a push-notification and displays the only correct – response code on the mobile phone screen.
Upon input of the response code in the authorization field the user gets access to the system’s services such as his/her personal account, their personal profile, transfer funds and make other transactions.
The E-NUM authentication system is now available to owners of external websites as well. In order to get access to the API, it’s necessary to make an application and receive approval on the official service website.
Currently the E-NUM service has approximately 2.5 million active users
Users who have already installed the E-NUM mobile application can access other services by authorising access to their personal data via the OAuth 2.0 standard.
E-NUM allows website owners with not only to provide additional security for their transactions but also to save costs by opting out of receiving SMS-confirmations.
The E-NUM service can be particularly relevant for the online banking industry. The E-NUM mobile application is compatible with Android, iOS and Windows Phone. The E-NUM service can also be used with smart Android Wear and Pebble Watch.
