What is EMV?
EMV is the world class set of standards administering the interoperability of chip-based cards and terminals. This technical standard was originally designed by Europay, which is now known to be Visa and MasterCard.

How Does EMV Secure Transactions?
An EMV card is practically difficult to counterfeit. Payment information is kept in a secure chip instead of on a magnetic stripe. This secure chip is capable of demonstrating cryptographic processing while the payment transaction is being made. The issuers of EMV cards use a specific set of keys while they are being used and personalized.

An EMV card has improved functionalities for card authentication, authorization of the transaction and verification of the cardholder in order for the card-present transactions to be secured.
