Veeder-Root: TLS4 Series Security Settings

TLS4 Series

Technical Support Notification

TLS4 Series Security Settings

Overview

The TLS4 Series consoles come with security features allowing for greater protection and control of access to the Automatic Tank Gauge. Features such as configurable user access and segmented network ports help ensure both network and front-panel security.

This update covers:

  • User and Roles Admin
    • Create User Accounts
    • Custom Roles
  • System Security
    • Front Panel Security
    • Serial Command Port (TCP/IP Interface)
    • SSH Port
    • Serial Command Over SSH
    • HTTPS Port
    • User Admin Via Web
  • Router and Network Switch

User & Roles Admin

Create User Accounts & Custom RolesCreate User Accounts

All TLS4 Series consoles come preconfigured with three roles: Administrator, Operator and Regulator. Additional custom roles can be programmed.

Menu –> System Administration –> Roles Admin

Administrator: This role gives full access to the console – including the ability to create new roles and users.

Operator: This role allows the user to view and generate reports and perform certain manual functions, such as starting a manual line or tank test.

Regulator: This role allows the user to print and view console reports.

Note: Users assigned to the Regulator role cannot be deleted.

To add a Custom role, select Actions –> Add New Role

The Custom role allows each individual screen to be viewable, editable or not accessible. For example, in Setup under the Automatic Events section, each option can be customized:

Veeder-Root strongly recommends creating an Administrator account with a unique password. This will disable the default username and password.

Note: When using the Plus View or Remote View apps, the same login credentials are used.


Security

System SecuritySecurity Settings

The TLS4 Series consoles have optional security features to enhance protection in addition to front panel security that requires a username and password, when enabled.

Front Panel Security: When disabled, all users can access all screens with no password required. When enabled, users must login with a password to gain access to the screens they’re allowed to view.

Serial Command Port (TCP/IP Interface): When disabled, the console will not accept any serial commands sent through a telnet session.

Note: This will not block all traffic on the TCP/IP port. It will only block serial commands.

SSH Port: When disabled, all traffic on the SSH port will be blocked.

Serial Command Over SSH: For the SSH Public Keys feature to work, this port and the SSH port must be enabled. By default, this port is disabled.

HTTPS Port (Web Access): When disabled, all traffic on the HTTPS port will be blocked. This will prevent access to the web portal, and the Plus View and Remote View apps.

User Admin via Web: When disabled, the System Administration screens will be blocked from the web portal – access to these two screens will only be available on the console’s front panel.

Router or Network Switch

Most routers or network switches have additional features allowing ports to be enabled or disabled. Contact device manufacturers or internet service providers (ISPs) for more information.

Mastercard to phase out magstripe cards: What that means for you

End of an Era: Mastercard Phases Out Magstripe Cards + Implications for C-StoresEnd of an Era: Mastercard Phases Out Magstripe Cards + Implications for C-Stores

The end of swipe is upon us. Mastercard has announced it is phasing out the use of magstripe cards.
Yes, after six decades of swipes, that little magnetic stripe on the back of your bank cards is going away. The move has plenty of implications for convenience stores that have not upgraded to outdoor EMV.

Starting in 2024, Mastercard will no longer require its credit and debit cards to have a stripe in most markets. By 2027, U.S. banks will no longer be required to issue chip cards with a magnetic stripe. Mastercard expects to eliminate magstripes by 2033.

Before we discuss what this means for c-stores, let’s remember how we got here.

Back to the Future

The magstripe was invented in the 1960’s to replace flatbed imprinting machines (aka knuckle-busters), which cashiers used to record credit card information.

So how were stores able to instantly verify a customer’s account? They couldn’t. Instead, card companies would send merchants a list of bad account numbers and the merchant had to match their own lists to verify purchases.

Fast-forward to today, EMV chips are used for 86% of face-to-face card transactions globally. Only 11% of consumers still prefer the magstripe, according to a December 2020 survey paid for by Mastercard.

That negative consumer sentiment is directly related to the lack of security measures surrounding magstripes. Criminals have proven they can easily steal consumers’ cardholder data using malware and skimmers to embed that stolen data onto counterfeit magstripe cards. On the other hand, cards with EMV chips are encrypted and cannot be so easily stolen.

What Does it Mean for C-Stores?Outdoor EMV Liability Shifts to Convenience Store Retailers

For convenience stores that have already upgraded their fuel dispensers with outdoor EMV technology, it’s business as usual.

For retailers who still haven’t invested in modern payment technology as mandated by EMV regulations, business is about to become even more complicated. Mastercard was the first to take this position on magstripes; but the other major card brands are very likely to follow suite with their own plans to phase out magnetic stripes from credit cards.

If retailers with old equipment don’t upgrade soon, their customers could be forced to use cash to pay for gas inside the c-store. As most fuel business owners know, the lion-share of customers pay at the pump. Less than a third of consumers still use cash at all. Taking the pay-at-the-pump option off the table is a near-automatic business killer.

The end of magstripe cards isn’t the only problem non-compliant retailers face. Many major oil companies are now charging non-compliance fees for any station without EMV-ready forecourts. Some are even pulling the payment terminals out of the pumps altogether to avoid fraud.

The Bottom Line

Skipping on EMV? Don’t Say We Didn’t Warn You…
These complications are nothing compared to the constant and immediate threat of chargebacks as a result of fraud migration. As more retailers turn on EMV at the pump, criminals are seeking out easier targets that have not been upgraded.

While there are some tactics retailers can use in an attempt to mitigate fraud, none of them are as effective or foolproof as the mandated EMV upgrade.

Ready to start protecting your business and customers from fraud with EMV-compliant payment technology?
