Key Exchange - emvkeyexchange

This section describes the message parameters for EMV Keys Request transaction processing, which you can submit using the XML API integration method. Refer to the Integration Methods section for more information.

The emvkeyexchange transaction requests EMV keys:

  • To update the device
  • To initially get the EMV keys
  • When an EMV Chip Sale (emvchipsale) transaction response returns an ssl_update_emv_keys value of  Y
  • When an EMV Chip Auth Only (emvchipauthonly) transaction response returns an ssl_update_emv_keys value of  Y
  • When an EMV Swipe Sale (emvswipesale) transaction response returns an ssl_update_emv_keys value of  Y

In this section:

Response

Field name Description
ssl_result Transaction Outcome
An ssl_result = 0 indicates a successful EMV keys request.

Format: MMDDYYYY
emv_key_collection Parent Element of EMV Key Collection
emv_key EMV Key
Parent element of key definition.
public_key_index Public Key Index
Indicates the public key in conjunction with the RID.
hash_id Hash ID
Identifier of the hash algorithm used to produce the hash results in the digital signature scheme.
signature_id Signature ID
Identifier of the digital signature algorithm used with the public key.
Value: 01 - Default (always)
public_key Public Key Value
public_key_length Public Key Length
A Public Key element used to confirm the size of the public key in the cryptography process.
