NCR Tamper Resistant DIP Card Reader

NCR has released a new Tamper Resistant DIP Card Reader (TRCR). The new TRCR is currently available and provides additional physical protection against eaves-dropping and deep insert skimming attacks on ATMs.

How Do These Attacks Happen?

Eaves-dropping attacks occur when criminals attach devices to data carrying contacts of PCB/read heads that can record the customers’ cards and extract card data. Deep insert skimming attacks transpire when a thin skimming plate is placed inside the DIP reader to record and extract card data. 

How Does the New TRCR Protect Against These Attacks?

NCR has addressed these two attacks by installing a resin over the magnetic read head signal pins and covered the electronics board with an epoxy material to block signals to their attached eaves-dropping device along with embedding a card protection plate built directly into the card reader and reducing the height of the card path from 1.3mm to 0.84-0.99mm to mitigate deep insert skimming.
