Netcetera 3DS Server - Release Notes - Version 18.104.22.168
Version 22.214.171.124 is a patch release of the Netcetera 3DS Server.
For documentation about this release please refer to the documentation site.
This version is backwards compatible with previous versions of the Netcetera 3DS Server.
Netcetera 3DS Server has received a new reference number from EMVCo (3DS_LOA_SER_NEAG_020200_00524), which is included in this 3DS Server version 126.96.36.199 and supports both EMV 3DS 2.2.0 and 2.1.0 transaction processing. The old reference number (3DS_LOA_SER_NEAG_020200_00256) expires on February 18th, 2022. The updating of reference number is not based on functional changes, but rather was a requirement due to the approaching expiration date.
Directory Server configurations for all Schemes should be updated in the Admin UI / XML configuration to use the new 3DS Server Reference Number. We would advise you to coordinate this process with the relevant Schemes in order to ensure a smooth transition and avoid rejected transactions. The following feedback that we have received from different Schemes can be used as a guideline for planning the update:
- Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Diners, MIR: Need to be informed of the new reference number, in order to activate it on their end. Transactions would not be rejected even when using the old reference number past the expiration date.
- JCB, CB: Need to be informed of the new reference number, in order to activate it on their end. Old reference number will be valid only during a temporary migration period.
- UnionPay: Needs to be informed of the new reference number and comfort tests using the new reference number need to be performed additionally, in order to activate it on their end. Old reference number will be valid only during a temporary migration period.
- New 3DS Server Reference Number issued by EMVCo (3DS_LOA_SER_NEAG_020200_00524), supporting 2.1.0 and 2.2.0 transactions, is included as an option under the Directory Server configuration in the Admin UI and set by default in the schema of the XML configuration.
