Banco de Credito de Inversiones is one of Chile's largest and most progressive banks, while Belltech is a KAL partner with offices in Argentina, Chile, Colombia and Peru.

The challenge: Provide a multivendor ATM solution to eliminate fraud by enabling automated teller machines to spot counterfeit cards.

Project requirements

Eliminate card skimming attacks at ATMs using Magneprint technology.

The solution

KAL, Belltech and MagTek teamed up to provide BCI Chile with the new solution. KAL’s Kalignite NDC software was seamlessly integrated with MagTec’s Magneprint technology and rolled out by Belltech to more than 1,000 BCI ATMs. This was the world's first deployment of this new, patented technology.

Magneprint allows the magnetic stripe on the ATM card to be "fingerprinted", so that if a forged card is made from the original good card, it can be detected by Magneprint as a forgery. A major advantage is that the bank does not have to issue smartcards (also known as chip cards) which are an alternative way to stop card skimming attacks.
