Remita Security Features

Dynamic Authentication Number (DAN)

Remita provides users with a number of options to securely authorize transactions. These include hard or soft token, biometrics etc. 

Remita always look for ways to simplify the authentication process without compromising security. 

To this end, we recently introduced the “Dynamic Authentication Number” (DAN), a proprietary concept that allows the user to define the parameters that make up their transaction authentication combination, known only to the user. 

Dynamic Authentication Number” is also a useful alternative for corporate users that may experience difficulties in retrieving Remita Access Code through their organisation’s email system. 

DAN is fully internal to Remita. It does not require email transmission, hence removing the current user dependence on an email address, email server settings and network issues. 

To proceed in adopting this option: 

1.    Your System Administrator should nominate “Dynamic Authentication Number” as the “Authentication Type” on your corporate Approval Workflow and get this approved by the final Approver for such changes. 

2.    Payment Approvers then define relevant parameters on the “Change My Password/Security/PSN” page. (A Hint on the screen offers short, concise steps in guiding you to achieve this) These include, selecting the preferred:

i.     Personal Security Number (PSN) (i.e any 2 to 4 digit number), and

ii.    Operator {i.e Plus (+), Minus (-), Multiplication (x), Division (/) or “Do nothing”}.

            1.  “Do nothing” means when asked for your DAN, you simply provide the PSN.

2.   “+” means the system would supply you with a random number. Please add this number to your PSN to give your answer.

3.   “-” means the system would supply you with a random number. Please subtract this number from your PSN to give your answer.

4.   “*” means the system would supply you with a random number. Please multiply this number to your PSN to give your answer.

5.   “/” means the system would supply you with a random number. Please divide your PSN by this number. You are to supply only the numbers before the decimal point.

Once the set-up above has been concluded, the system will provide the Approver with a randomly generated number at the point of transaction approval. The Approver will be required to supply his DAN to gain access to pending transactions awaiting his authorization.
