Security and functional testing in compliance with Visa’s program for innovative mobile payment solutions

Mobile payment is a fast changing environment. New and innovative solutions are constantly appearing, driven by new technologies (such as HCE or TEE), new form factors (USIM, eSE, SD cards, add-ons) and new devices used for payment such as wearables.
In order to help issuers, manufacturers & technology partners to deploy innovative payment solutions, Visa launched the Visa Ready Program.  This program establishes Visa’s requirements for mobile solutions in order to support Visa payWave (Visa contactless payment).
