SDK and Device data initialization

Device data collection is used by the card issuer to fingerprint the customer's device. Along with the risk data in theauthenticationrequest it's used to decide if achallengeis required or if the authentication can be frictionless (no challenge displayed to shopper). This step is required for the authentication to use 3DS2.

Device data initialization

This request creates a JSON Web Token (JWT) that is used as part of the SDK initialization and device data collection. Whilst the web integration captures browser details the App SDK gathers information about the users mobile device.

POST your device data initialization request to the 3ds:deviceDataInitialize action link.

Note: Unlike the web integration you do not need to request and use the BIN for device data collection purposes. If your integration involves both Web and android/iOS you could use the sameDevice Data Initializerequest as web for simplicity.

Important: You should only request the device data initialization API from your backend system, not call it directly from the mobile application using the Access credentials.

ParameterDescription
deviceDataCollection.jwtA digitally signed token that contains additional details required for device data collection.
deviceDataCollection.urlA POST action on the device data collection form. Used to redirect to the issuers device data collection page. Only used for the web integration

SDK initialization

Setup the Cardinal SDK

Initial call to Cardinal and response

From this you will get returned the consumerSessionId for use in theauthentication request
