Let's talk ATMs ... by which I mean automatic teller machines (got to be specific with the IT crowd). Most
of us take them for granted: They're a quick, convenient way to grab some cash when we're out and about, and only occasionally
do we consider the complexities of ATM security.
But complex it is, and as we all know, a great deal of time, effort, and expense goes into keeping these banking systems
secure. This week's developerWorks WebSphere feature takes you behind the touch screen to explore one approach to ATM security
-- specifically, how to process
secure ATM card data with WebSphere Message Broker. Dr. Hesham Soultan explains how Message Broker does this by integrating
two well-known security systems -- Host Security Module (HSM) and IST/Switch. He also describes the important message flows
of the integration code, as well as the key parts of the associated ESQL code.
We think you'll be gratified to see how Message Broker's powerful features work to protect your hard-earned money. As for
that suspicious-looking guy standing near the ATM, well, you're on your own with that.
Until next week,
John Swanson and the developerWorks editorial team
