CAMARA Sandbox - SimSwap - Orange lab API is part of CAMARA APIs by Orange.
This sandboxed version is limited to a short list of mobile devices (MSISDNs) that only work in our lab.
What it does?
The CAMARA SimSwap API performs real-time checks on the activation date of a SIM card on the mobile network. It reveals if an individual mobile line has been ported to another SIM card.
The SIM Swap API is useful to prevent fraud by reducing the risk of account takeover fraud by strengthening SIM based authentication processes such as SMS One-time passwords. Fraudsters are using Simswap techniques to intercept SMS messages and reset passwords or receive verification codes that allow them to access protected accounts.
The SIM Swap API is used by an application to get information about a mobile line last sim swap date. It can be easily integrated and used through this secured API and allows SPs (Service Provider) to get this information an easy & secured way. The API provides management of 2 resources answering 2 distinct questions:
- When did the last SIM swap occur(*)?
- Has a SIM swap occurred during last n hours?
