Second Factor Authentication (2FA) is an additional layer of security used by the bank to verify customer's online identity.

This is in addition to the existing Internet banking Username and Password and in line with the recommendations from Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) for all banks to adopt two-factor authentication (2FA) for better online banking security.

What is Standard Chartered's approach to 2FA for retail banking customers?

Since November 2006, the bank has deployed an SMS-based solution for retail banking customers whereby the ALP is received via SMS sent to their mobile phones. To provide further flexibility and conveniences, the bank will offer the security token from October 2007 onwards as another 2FA option for our customers.

It is compulsory to use the ALP should you wish to perform online banking transactions or access to account details in our Internet banking. This will ensure that only authorised customers can gain access to highly sensitive banking information.

Security
How secure is this service?

This service employs the 128-bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL), which is one of the strongest encryption technology most commonly used by large-scale online merchants, banks, and brokerages worldwide. For transaction level security, this service employs "2-Factor Authentication" to verify customer identity. All online sessions between you and the bank are protected by up to 128-bit encryption, which best protects your information against disclosure to third parties.

What is encryption and how is it used to protect my information?

Encryption is a method of scrambling your information to protect its transmission across the Internet. Encryption transforms data into an unreadable form, and decryption reverses that process. Both encryption and decryption require the use of a special code, usually referred to as 'encryption key'. The encryption of data provides a strong degree of protection against tampering while data is moving through the Internet.

How do I activate Secure Socket Layer (SSL) Version 3.0?

If you are using any of the followings:

Netscape Communicator 4.7x Internet Explorer 5.x
Click on [Communicator]
Select [Tools] follow by [Security Info]

Click on [OK]
Click on [Tools]

Select [Advanced] Tab
Scroll down to [Security]
Check [Use SSL 3.0]
Click on [OK]
