EMV 3D Secure Overview

EMV® Three-Domain Secure (3DS) is a messaging protocol developed by EMVCo. It allows consumers to authenticate themselves with their card issuer when making card-not-present (CNP) e-commerce purchases.

The 3DS domains are the:

  • Merchant and acquirer domain
  • Issuer domain
  • Interoperability domain. For example, payment systems.

  • Shift liability for chargebacks for fraudulent transactions from merchants onto the card issuer.
