ISO 13491-2:2017 specifies checklists to be used to evaluate secure cryptographic devices (SCDs) incorporating cryptographic processes as specified in ISO 9564â€‘1, ISO 9564â€‘2, ISO 16609, ISO 11568â€‘1, ISO 11568â€‘2, and ISO 11568â€‘4 in the financial services environment. Integrated circuit (IC) payment cards are subject to the requirements identified in this document up until the time of issue after which they are to be regarded as a personal device and outside of the scope of this document.
ISO 13491-2:2017 does not address issues arising from the denial of service of an SCD.
In the checklists given in Annex A to Annex H, the term not feasible is intended to convey the notion that although a particular attack might be technically possible, it would not be economically viable since carrying out the attack would cost more than any benefits obtained from a successful attack. In addition to attacks for purely economic gain, malicious attacks directed toward loss of reputation need to be considered.
