Additional information regarding notifications

We currently do not have a notification which alerts the merchant if a card is enrolled or not in 3DS.There are settings which decide what action to take if a card is enrolled or not.

Discuss with Merchant support for these workflow settings. This notification is upcoming in future releases.

Verify Notification Checksum (OPTIONAL)

Every notification will include the X-ISX-Checksum header. This header will hold the hash-based message authentication code (HMAC) value of the notification body.

The notification body is hashed using the SHA256 HMAC algorithm, using a unique key generated for this purpose. It is provided to you with the name of Notification Token.

To generate the hash you should be using the RAW BODY of the response with the Key that was provided to you.

The resulting hash is base64-encoded. The header can be used to verify that the notification message has not been tampered while in transit.
