Title: A unified platform for banking services using a standard messaging format
Author: Khalid Abdelrahim Mohammed, Hadeel
Abstract: The objective of the thesis is to develop a Unified platform for Banking Services. Compared to The traditional banking services, the originality of this thesis is to make banking transactions easier and to enable interfacing of delivery channels such as phone banking or Internet banking and to enhance its usefulness and increase its security. The platform created acts as a gateway and message handler to allow any customer to access services by passing transactions to the core banking application. The unified platform will act as a middleware between the core banking application and delivery channels that are used to deliver services to the customer. The unified platform is capable of receiving various message formats. The message standard set by the international organization is the most common used format. We adopted this format used in other protocols to communicate with delivery channels to provide electronic banking services. The unified platform adopts IFX (International Financial eXchange) as the message standard that is used to communicate with the core banking system. So the main role of the unified platform is to act as an interface to transform various other external messages formats to IFX. For our practical implementation example, we used plain text format and ISO٨٥٨٣ as illustrations of external message format. IFX is adopted in financial applications as a standard format that is based on XML (eXtensible Markup Language), finally a brief description of messages standards and XML features and benefits is presented, followed by the security and the methods that used to increase the service channels security.
