Description

Encryption pin pad {ENCRYPTING PIN PAD}

The present invention relates to an Encrypting Pin Pad (EPP).

A banking machine including a bank terminal device such as a financial automator such as an automatic teller machine (ATM) and a card reader is generally capable of reading user's card information, The process of the next step can be performed only when the password inputted by inputting the password matches the actual password of the card.

In the case of a financial device requiring such a high level of security, a keypad for receiving a password from a user may be combined with an encryption device for encrypting input data. As such an encryption device, an encryption key pad (EPP) having recently adopted a DES (Data Encryption Standard) algorithm is widely used.

The encryption pin pad has a keypad for a user to input a password and a memory (SRAM) in which an encryption key is stored. The memory is provided inside the encryption pin pad so that it can not be manipulated externally. It can be exposed to the outside so as to be operable.

However, if an unauthorized person disassembles the encryption pin pad arbitrarily to access the memory and then connects the hacking device to the memory, financial information such as password and card information may leak.

In order to solve such a problem, in the related art, a configuration for detecting whether or not the encryption pin pad is disassembled is provided, and when it is determined that the encryption pin pad is disassembled, the financial information previously stored in the memory is generally deleted. For example, it is possible to determine whether the encryption pin pad is disassembled by detecting a short circuit between the configuration and the substrate, after providing a configuration in which the substrate is electrically connected to the substrate inside the encryption pin pad.

However, according to the above-described prior art, when a clearance is generated between parts due to manufacturing tolerances of parts or deformation of parts due to use or the like, a shock (external shock) The above configuration can be easily detached from the substrate, which is mistaken for an intruder of an outside person, thereby erasing financial information.

The banknotes and the like that are traded by the transaction can be moved to the outside or inside of the financial instrument 1 through the deposit / withdrawal portion 4. [ In addition, a staff telephone 5 can be installed on one side of the financial instrument 1. [ When a specific problem occurs in the financial instrument 1 and manpower is required to solve the problem, the user using the financial instrument 1 can use the teleoperator 5 for calling the bank, the security officer, And the like.

The encryption pin pad 100 is a device for receiving numerals, characters, or special functions from a user, and is a device that generates an electrical signal by operating a portion exposed to the outside by a user.

A portion of the financial instrument 1 such as the front bezel 10 may press the contact module exposed to the outside of the encryption pin pad 100 when the encryption pin pad 100 is mounted to the financial instrument 1. [ Here, a part of the financial instrument 1 is exemplified as the front bezel 10, but other configurations other than the front bezel 10 may press the contact module depending on the specific structure of the financial instrument 1.

The upper cover 111 may cover the upper surface of the substrate 130 and the lower cover 112 may cover the lower surface of the substrate 130. For convenience of explanation, the upper side of the substrate 130 will be referred to as an upper surface and the lower side will be referred to as a lower side with reference to the drawing, and the upper and lower sides of the substrate 130 will be referred to as " The upper cover 111 covers the upper surface and the lower cover 112 covers the lower surface of the substrate 130. [ Depending on the viewpoint, the lower cover 112 may be understood as an upper cover covering the upper surface of the substrate 130.

In summary, the concept of the upper / lower and upper / lower surfaces referred to herein is only for explaining the relative relationship of each configuration of the encryption pin pad 100, and is not an absolute concept considering the relationship with the ground.

The upper cover 111 may include a top portion 111a and a base portion 111b. The top portion 111a protrudes upward from the base portion 111b and can have a cross sectional area smaller than that of the base portion 111b so that the rim portion of the base portion 111b is not covered by the top portion 111a, . A through hole 113 for exposing the keypad 120 to the outside may be formed on the top portion 111a.

A hole 114 through which the contact module 140 passes may be formed at the rim of the base 111b. The plurality of contact modules 140 may be provided, and the plurality of holes 114 may be provided. In this embodiment, two contact modules 140 and two holes 114 are provided.

[ For example, the front bezel 10 may have an opening in which the top portion 111a is positioned to expose the top portion 111a and the keypad 120 to the outside. However, the front bezel 10 may not expose the base portion 111b of the upper cover 111 to the outside.

The front bezel 10 can be positioned on the rim of the base portion 111b and can press down the rim of the base portion 111b in the process of assembling. At this time, the contact module 140, which is partially exposed on the upper cover 111, can be pressed down by the front bezel 10, and the contact module 140 is pressed down by the front bezel 10 Accordingly, when the contact module 140 and the substrate 130 are electrically short-circuited, the financial information previously stored may be deleted by considering that an outsider is approaching with an unjust purpose. In a normal state after the assembly of the financial instrument is completed, the front bezel 10 can always press the contact module 140, so that the contact module 140 always maintains electrical contact with the substrate 130 It is because.

The substrate 130 may be a general printed circuit board (PCB). Various electrical components such as a processor, a memory, a conductive track, a sensor, and a circuit may be mounted on the substrate 130. For example, the contact module 140 may be electrically connected to the substrate 130 through contact with a conductive track of the substrate 130.

The keypad 120 can receive information such as a password from a user. The keypad 120 may be provided between the upper cover 111 and the substrate 130 and may be exposed to the outside through the through hole 113 of the upper cover 111. [ Herein, the keypad 120 may be pressed in a mechanical manner to transmit an electrical signal to the substrate. However, the present invention is not limited to this, and the keypad may transmit an electrical signal to the substrate in a recently-popular touch-screen method.

The contact module 140 can be electrically connected to the substrate 130 by contacting one side of the contact pin 140 when the encapsulation pin pad 100 is mounted on the financial instrument 1 as described above. In the normal state, the substrate 130 and the contact module 140 are maintained in an electrically connected state, so that when the substrate 130 and the contact module 140 are electrically short-circuited, there is an intrusion, for example, . ≪ / RTI >

The contact module 140 may include a first elastic unit (FIGS. 3 and 141), a second elastic unit (FIGS. 3 and 142), and a conductive sheet 160. The first elastic unit 141 is exposed to the outside of the housing 110 before assembly and the encryption pin pad 100 is mounted on the financial instrument 1 and a part of the financial instrument 1, (Not shown). The second elastic unit 142 can be pressed by the first elastic unit 141 and moved to the side of the substrate 130 so that the second elastic unit 142 can be moved to the side of the substrate 130, The contact module 140 and the substrate 130 can be electrically connected to each other through the contact between the contact module 140 and the substrate 130. The contact module 140 will be described in detail with reference to FIGS. 4 to 6. FIG.

The control circuit can detect that the substrate 130 and the contact module 140 are electrically short-circuited and if the substrate 130 and the contact module 140 are electrically short-circuited, Information, for example, card information and / or password. The control circuit may be mounted on the upper surface and / or the lower surface of the substrate 130, or may be provided as a separate module at a point adjacent to the substrate 130 and may be electrically connected to the substrate 130. The control circuit that performs this function is already well known in the art and will not be described in further detail.

FIG. 4 is an enlarged view of the contact module 140 of the encryption pin pad 100 of FIG. 2, and FIG. 5 is a cross-sectional view taken along the line A-A of FIG. 4 and 5, the contact module 140 will be described in detail. 4 and 5 show the contact module 140 before the encryption pin pad 100 is mounted on the financial instrument.

As described above, the contact module 140 may include a first elastic unit 141, a second elastic unit 142, and a conductive sheet 160.

The first elastic unit 141 may include a guide member 141a, an elastic member 141c, and a rod 141d. A space 141b that is opened upward is formed in the guide member 141a and the outer circumferential surface of the guide member 141a can contact the accommodating portion of the second elastic unit 142 to be described later. The elastic member 141c may be provided in the space 141b inside the guide member 141a and may be deformed (compressed or stretched) up and down with reference to the drawing. The rod 141d can be pressed downward by a part of the financial instrument (for example, a front bezel) to compress the elastic member 141c while moving along the inner peripheral surface of the guide member 141a. The elastic member 141c is compressed so that the elastic force can be transmitted to the guide member 141a and the elastic force is transmitted to the second elastic unit 142, 142).

The second elastic unit 142 may include a first portion 142a, a second portion 142b, a third portion 142c, and a fourth portion 142d.

The first portion 142a may be a portion that is directly pressed by the first elastic unit 141 and may be a cylindrical shape having an upwardly open receiving portion therein. The first elastic unit 141 can be inserted into the receiving portion. More specifically, the outer circumferential surface of the guide member 141a of the first elastic unit 141 may be disposed so as to be in contact with the inner circumferential surface of the accommodating portion.

The second portion 142b may have a cone shape with the top cut out. For example, the upper end of the second portion 142b may be connected to the peripheral portion of the lower surface of the first portion 141a, and the diameter thereof may become larger toward the lower portion. In addition, an empty space may be provided therein.

And the third portion 142c may be in contact with the center of the lower surface of the first portion 142a. The third portion 142c may protrude downward from the lower surface of the first portion 142a through the empty space inside the second portion 142b and the conductive sheet 160 may be connected to the lower surface thereof.

The upper surface of the fourth portion 142d may be connected to the lower end of the second portion 142b, and the lower surface may be in contact with the substrate 130. [ A first through hole 150 for contacting the substrate 130 and the conductive sheet 160 may be formed at the center of the fourth portion 142d.

For reference, the diameter herein refers to the diameter of the circular cross section of each configuration when the contact module 140 is viewed from top to bottom in FIG.

6 is a cross-sectional view showing a state of the contact module 140 when the encryption pin pad 100 of FIG. 2 is mounted on a financial instrument.

A part of the financial instrument such as the front bezel 10 presses a part of the contact module 140 exposed to the outside of the housing 110 when the encryption pin pad 100 is mounted on the financial instrument, . More specifically, as shown in the figure, the front bezel 10 can press down the rod 141d of the first elastic unit 141 exposed to the outside of the upper cover 111. The rod 141d can compress the elastic member 141c while moving down along the guide member 141a. The elastic force formed by the compression of the elastic member 141c can be transmitted to the lower surface of the guide member 141a and the elastic force can be transmitted to the second elastic unit 142 which can directly contact the lower surface of the guide member 141a, Lt; / RTI > of the first portion 141a of the first portion 141a.

When the second elastic unit 142 starts to be pressed by the first elastic unit 141 through the first part 142a receiving the elastic force from the guide member 141a, The first portion 142a and the third portion 142c and the conductive sheet 160 that can be connected to the third portion 142c can be gradually moved toward the substrate 130 side. At the same time, the second portion 142b is also deformed to change the angle with respect to the substrate 130 to induce movement of the first portion 142a, the third portion 142c, and the conductive sheet 160 as described above have.

When the first portion 142a and the third portion 142c of the second elastic unit 142 and the conductive sheet 160 are moved downward, the conductive sheet 160 is in contact with the substrate 130 Whereby the conductive sheet 160 can be electrically connected to the substrate 130. For example, a conductive track may be formed on the substrate 130, and the conductive sheet 160 may be in contact with the conductive track so that the two are electrically connected to each other. The control circuit may be connected to the conductive track and sense whether the conductive sheet 160 and the conductive track are electrically short-circuited.

When the outsider attempts to approach the encryption pin pad 100 starting from the removal of the front bezel 10 in the above state, the front bezel 10 no longer moves the rod 141d of the first elastic unit 141 The elastic member 141c can be extended upward again so that the second elastic unit 142 can also return to the shape as shown in Fig. As a result, the conductive sheet 160 and the substrate 130 can be electrically short-circuited, and the control circuit can delete the previously stored financial information after sensing it.

In the case of the encryption pin pad 100 according to the present embodiment, as described above, the contact module 140 having a dual structure is implemented by arranging the two elastic units 141 and 142 successively. That is, a first elastic unit 141 that receives a pressing force directly from the outside, and a second elastic unit 141 that is pressed by the first elastic unit 141 to contact the substrate 130 (more precisely, the conductive sheet 160 The second elastic unit 142 may contact the substrate 130). This double structure can improve the operational airtightness and stability of the contact module 140.

Also, the possibility of malfunction can be significantly reduced compared to when the contact module 140 is provided in a single structure. In more detail, in the related art, a contact module of a single structure usually has a contact with the substrate and is electrically connected to the substrate. However, due to manufacturing tolerances of the components or deformation of the components due to use, In this case, the contact module may easily fall off the substrate if there is an external impact (such as a simple impact, not an unjust purpose) on the financial instrument, and the control circuit may mistake this as an intrusion of an external person and delete the financial information.

In order to prevent such a malfunction, in the case of this embodiment, the second elastic unit 142 directly contacting the substrate 130 (more precisely, the conductive sheet 160 is contacted to the substrate 130) (For example, the front bezel 10) and indirectly pressurized by the first elastic unit 141. In this case,

Also, as described above, the elastic modulus of the first elastic unit 141 is designed to be larger than the elastic modulus of the second elastic unit 142. That is, when the first elastic unit 141 and the second elastic unit 142 are compared with each other, it is assumed that the elastic force provided by the first elastic unit 141 is equal to that of the second elastic unit 142 ) May be larger than the elastic force provided by the elastic member.

In order to mount the encryption pin pad 100 on a financial instrument, a part of a financial instrument such as the front bezel 10 must press the first elastic unit 141 exposed to the outside of the housing 110, 141 have a relatively high elastic modulus, they generate a relatively high elastic force and can press the second elastic unit 142. The second elastic unit 142 can be urged toward the substrate 130 side by a stronger force than when it is a single structure. In other words, in the case of this embodiment, a relatively large force is required to assemble a part of a financial instrument such as the front bezel 10 to a financial instrument, compared with a single structure (a first elastic unit 141 having a relatively large elastic modulus ), And this large force can be transmitted to the second elastic unit 142. [0064] The second elastic unit 142 is urged toward the substrate 130 side by a relatively high elastic force (the second elastic unit 142 is more in the case of a single structure than in the case of a single structure) The possibility of a malfunction in which the conductive sheet 160 and the board 130 are short-circuited electrically due to a temporary external impact and the financial information is deleted may be significantly lowered.

In addition, since the second elastic unit 142 applies a direct physical force to the substrate 130 with the conductive sheet 160 interposed therebetween, there is a restriction on the selection of the material thereof, and it can be usually formed of silicon rubber. The silicone rubber material has a limitation in obtaining a strong pressing force. In this embodiment, the first elastic unit 141 having a spring pin structure can be employed to overcome the above limitations. Specifically, it is possible to use a relatively rigid guide member 141a and a rod 141d, and an elastic member 141c such as a spring capable of selecting a high elastic modulus, so that a strong pressing force (elastic force) (The elastic member 141c) and can transmit it to the second elastic unit 142 without loss (the guide member 141a and the rod 141d of rigid material).

In addition, when the double elastic structure is implemented as in the present embodiment, the overall stroke length of the elastic units 141 and 142 can be increased. In the case of a single structure of the conventional silicone rubber, the stroke length is only about 1-2 mm, and even if there is a slight tolerance or clearance, a short circuit phenomenon occurs with the substrate. However, in the case of this embodiment, a larger elastic force can be applied to the second elastic unit 142 by the first elastic unit 141, so that the entire elastic units 141, 142 including the stroke of the first elastic unit 141, 142 can be increased to about 6-7 mm. Thereby, the second elastic unit 142 may not be short-circuited from the substrate.

4 to 6, the fourth portion 142d of the second elastic unit 142 will be described. As shown, the fourth portion 142d may be in the form of a disc whose diameter may be greater than the diameter of the lower end of the second portion 142b. That is, the fourth portion 142d may protrude further to the side of the contact module 140 relative to other portions. The upper surface of the fourth portion 142d can be pressed by another component provided inside the encryption pin pad 100 so that the second elastic unit 142 is prevented from being detached from the substrate 130 . For example, the upward movement of the fourth portion 142d may be limited by the protrusion protruding from the upper cover 111, or may be pressed downward.

4, a second through hole 151 may be formed in the fourth portion 142d. The second through hole 151 may communicate with the first through hole 150 formed at the center of the fourth portion 142d and at least a part may not be covered by the second portion 142b. The second through hole 151 is formed so that the second portion 142b is deformed in the direction in which the second portion 142b totally approaches the substrate 130 as the conductive sheet 160 and the first and third portions 142a and 142c move downward The air in the space inside the second portion 142b can be discharged to the outside. The conductive sheet 160 and the first and third portions 142a and 142c may be restricted from moving downward unless the air existing in the space inside the second portion 142b is discharged, It may also interfere with maintaining a firm contact between the substrates 130. Therefore, in the present embodiment, the second through hole 151 is additionally formed in the fourth portion 142d to prevent the above-described problems.
