ith fraudsters becoming increasingly sophisticated, Money Controls have met the needs of the industry by introducing ccTalk DES encryption to its range of cutting-

edge products. The introduction of ccTalk DES (or Data Encryption Standard) was in direct response to retailer and operator demand for even greater security on machines installed on the gaming floor.

The Data Encryption Standard (DES) is a block cipher (a form of shared secret encryption) that was selected by the National Bureau of Standards (USA) as an official Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) for the USA in 1976 and which has subsequently enjoyed widespread use internationally. It is based on a symmetric-key algorithm that uses a 56-bit key. To further improve security DES can be enhanced to Triple DES, which applies the DES cipher to each data block three times.

Money Controls’ DES encrypted products were first launched at IGE in London in January 2010. The products offer a significant weapon in combating fraud. Using literally millions of potential

Unlike existing encryption protocols, every

payment device and machine can potentially have a different DES key, which can be changed by the host machine. In fact the machine’s software can be programmed to change the key as frequently as every few minutes.

ccTalk DES encryption is a further development of

the ccTalk protocol - widely accepted as the industry standard. As a result of using ccTalk, systems and products can benefit from low-cost hardware, increased security, superior fault-code reporting, and real-time monitoring of cash transaction.

New advanced fraud devices have been developed

and are sold amongst fraudsters. Fraud attempts have targeted coin mechanisms, bill validators, hoppers and machine controllers. Consequently Money Controls has rolled DES out across its full product range, including the Ardac Elite bill acceptor, SR3des and SR5des coin acceptors, the SCH5 and Universal

with almost all gaming machines, and is very easy to use. Among the innovations you will find on the Ardac Elite is the unique ‘last bill’ technology. If there are any disputes about the last bill entered, either on the gaming display or by simply plugging in a PDA via the USB port, an image of the last note inserted can be displayed.

The Ardac Elite’s state of the art imaging

technology and 4-way barcode reader, allows customers to insert barcode tickets in any orientation, increasing acceptance rates and user satisfaction. Furthermore, the Ardac Elite is the ideal bill acceptor for server- based gaming.

Bill validator and cash handling experts Money Controls introduces a new level of security for the industry

combinations - 72,057,594,037,927,936 to be precise - they are yet another example of innovative thinking from the team at Money Controls.
