Sample GEOACL Configuration & Working for Securing eCommerce Transactions

John Smith wants to use his credit card with overall credit limit $10000 for online payments from home area (‘Main street, Old Bridge, N.J.), office area (located at ‘times square, New York city’) using computing devices like PC or laptop or any other or using wireless devices and mobile payment platforms or any other means.

He wants this access from within say 2 mile radius from given location's centre. He doesn't want to allow his credit card to be utilized from any other location for online shopping. Also he wants to further security by limiting amount of invoice during online payment to $1000 maximum if credit card used from ‘times square, NYC’ area. Based on this requirement, when ever John does online payment, our system will check his credit card details and current geographical location against locations configured in system by John himself. When card details are valid, amount is approvable and location match found, amount within location limit set if any, payment is allowed to succeed.

Now even if John Smith's credit card details get stolen anyhow, hacker must have to use it from locations configured by John Smith to be able to use it. So hacker would not be able to use it from any random location and if used from within 2 miles radius of John's time square location then he would get limited access—cannot use for amount more than $1000.

If John Smith receives alert indicating rejection or suspicious activity or become aware that his card/card details are stolen he can immediately reduce spending limit and or reduce radius and or cut down on locations allowed.
