What is ISO 8583 ?

ISO 8583 is a transaction based internet protocol, used for many applications in the financial sector. In fact most of our credit-card and ATM transactions in the world rely on the ISO8583 protocol.

It is an “authorization” based protocol which transmits all required information (i.e.: credit card) to the authorization service. The authorization service can be a clearing organization, a bank or a credit-card issuer. As soon as the authorization has been issued, a return message is sent back.

Why is it so important to monitor ISO8583 transactions ?

We’re depending on the success of ISO 8583 in everyday life each time we’re using our credit/debit cards to retrieve money or make a payment, online in a store or over the telephone.

Our payment satisfaction strongly depends on the delay between a payment request and the response or if the request needs to be repeated because the transaction failed for some technical problem of corrupted information during the transaction.
