Strong Customer Authentication (SCA)

Strong customer authentication, or SCA, is a regulation set by PSD2 for Payment Service Providers (PSPs) for their customer authentication methods. SCA increases the security of payments by mandating Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) in every electronic payment.

Today, every PSP in European Economic Area is obliged to apply MFA in each electronic transaction.
