The VeriFone PINpad 2000 uses systematic data programming where a user does not have to buy new hardware to cope with their key management requirement modifications. To answer this problem, yet offering protection is the use of a globally recognized method which is the Master/Session. It uses a master key and working sessions. Another key management used by the PINpad 2000 is the DUKPT, where working keys are automatically generated hence, synchronization across processing is applied.
