The CSC is in addition to the bank card number which is embossed or printed on the card. The CSC is used as a security feature, in situations where a PIN cannot be used.
CSC was originally developed in the UK as an 11 character alphanumeric code by Equifax employee Michael Stone in 1995. In 2016, a new e-commerce technology called Motioncode was introduced, designed to automatically refresh the CVV code to a new one every hour or so. The first code, called CVC1 or CVV1, is encoded on track two of the magnetic stripe of the card and used for card present transactions. The purpose of the code is to verify that a payment card is actually in the hand of the merchant. The second code, and the most cited, is CVV2 or CVC2. This code is often sought by merchants for card not present transactions occurring by mail, fax, telephone or Internet. In some countries in Western Europe, card issuers require a merchant to obtain the code when the cardholder is not present in person.
Contactless cards and chip cards may supply their own electronically generated codes, such as iCVV or a dynamic CVV. The card security code is typically the last three or four digits printed, not embossed like the card number, on the signature strip on the back of the card. The card security code is not encoded on the magnetic stripe but is printed flat. American Express cards have a four-digit code printed on the front side of the card above the number.
The code is the final group of numbers printed on the back signature panel of the card. This has been done to prevent overwriting of the numbers by signing the card. As a security measure, merchants who require the CVV2 for «card not present» payment card transactions are required by the card issuer not to store the CVV2 once the individual transaction is authorized. This applies globally to anyone who stores, processes or transmits card holder data. Supplying the CSC code in a transaction is intended to verify that the customer has the card in their possession. Knowledge of the code proves that the customer has seen the card, or has seen a record made by somebody who saw the card.
The use of the CSC cannot protect against phishing scams, where the cardholder is tricked into entering the CSC among other card details via a fraudulent website. The growth in phishing has reduced the real-world effectiveness of the CSC as an anti-fraud device. Payment gateways, however, have responded by adding «periodic bill» features as part of the authorization process. Some card issuers do not use the CSC.
