Introduction of Topic:
An ATM is an electronic device which allows a bank's customer to make cash withdrawals and check their account balance at any time without the need for a human teller. Many ATMs also allow depositing cash or cheques, transfer money between their banks. The World's first ATM was installed in ENFIELD town in the London on June 27, 1967 by Barclays bank.
Various protocols are used for transferring information over the network in the ATM. A few of them are explained in brief:
1. TCP (Transmission control protocol)
Connection oriented protocol.
TCP is used to dynamically adapt to properties of the internetwork & to be robust to face any failures.
2. SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol):
- Simple ASCII protocol, Accepts incoming messages & sends them to appropriate locations.
- It is a standard network protocol, Connection oriented.
- Provides flow control.
4. SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol):
- Used when information in entered through the keypad
As most of the ATMs are open for 24 hrs & also all of them are not guarded, it is important to provide security to the machine. One of the technologies is explained here.
The Electronic Signature Lock (ESL) is a patented technology that can be implemented in hardware, firmware, or software and used to protect digital resources, funds transfer, or physical access. It can identify computer terminal users locally or remotely without having to modify or attach anything to the terminal. It is completely transparent to the users and can be used surreptitiously without their knowledge and still uniquely identify them.
The ESL is attached to or integrated into the protected resource, such as a computer or automatic bank teller machine (ATM). Face recognition or finger print recognition are also the techniques used for the security of an ATM. In these techniques the related data is stored in the database
