We got our idea from the State Farm's slogan which is, "Here to help life go right." We think it's important to protect one's identity and financial security.
What it does
The app should generate a unique sixteen digit virtual credit card with CVV and Exp. That could be either temporary or permanent usage depending on the user as in hours, days or years. This virtual credit card should allow the customer to get access to all the credit cards they own. It should send them a notification to request them to choose a credit card for transaction.
This app is supposed to protect the consumer providing an extra layer of security for online/credit card purchases. It's supposed to use 128-bits encryption and data blinding to secure transactions.
How I built it
We developed an android application using Android Studio.
Challenges I ran into
The biggest challenge is finding encryption API and banking API. Due to security reasons there were no banking API's for us to use.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
This is all our first android application and first Hackathon.
What I learned
I learned new database to work with and develop application as a team. It also taught us what we did not know such as the API's.
What's next for Central Card
It will work and expand if banks are willing to cooperate with Central Card. This will reduce humongous number of frauds.
