What is PSD2?

The revised Payment Services Directive (PSD2) is a European regulation that requires banks to create mechanisms to enable third-party providers to work securely, reliably and rapidly with the bank’s services and data on behalf and with the consent of their customers. Whilst PSD2 does not explicitly require banks to use Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to meet their obligations, they quickly became standard practice.

How Open Bank Project PSD2 Suite helps

Open Bank Project PSD2 Suite enables financial institutions to securely and rapidly comply with PSD2. The Suite is based on Open Bank Project API Platform and includes a set of tools and software to handle TPP Registry, API Gateway, Consent Management, Risk Engine, Multi-factor Authentication and SCA. The solution supports major EU standards including Berlin Group specifications.
