MasterCard OKs Galitt contactless Level 2 terminal test suite

Galitt has received MasterCard qualification for its contactless functional tests, the company recently announced in a press release.

Galitt Contactless Terminal Test Suite assists the user in performing the requisite tests to qualify payment terminals for use with MasterCard contactless cards and devices. The suites include both positive and negative scenarios that test all functional aspects of the payment terminals, the release said.

The Galitt suite implements test cases used for the MasterCard Contactless Type Approval Level 2 for products compliant with:

  • MasterCard Contactless Reader Specification, version 3.1; and
  • EMV Book C-2 — Kernel 2 Specification, version 2.5.

The automated solution replaces physical cards with a simulator that presents the test scenarios to the terminal. Galitt said in the release that automation is paramount because a test session for contactless terminals typically includes more than 2,000 scenarios.

With the same tool, a test engineer can obtain all details about the test plans and analyze all exchanges between the card and the terminal.

The test tool automatically generates reports that show various levels of detail ranging from a compact report with a pass-fail result to a fully detailed report that lists tests, their applicability, and additional comments.
