Gaming Standards Association and iGaming Academy Launch Game Authentication Terminal Course

The Gaming Standards Association and iGaming Academy have launched “GSA Executive Overview: Game Authentication.” Earlier this year, GSA partnered with iGaming Academy to develop and host a series of e-learning modules related to GSA standards, and this is the first in a library of e-learning courses to come.

The course can be purchased from the iGaming Academy e-shop and serves as an insight into the fundamentals of GAT. The course is specifically designed for anyone with an interest in learning how to deliver the highest quality software in order to ensure player protection and game integrity.

On completing this course, learners will:

  • Understand some of the history behind game authentication
  • Understand how game authentication is performed
  • Be familiar with the command set used by the serial GAT protocol
  • Understand how the same game authentication services can be accessed through other protocols
  • Be familiar with the command set used by the Network GAT Interface

“GSA ispleased to launch this first course in our e-learning initiative. As I said at the time we announced our partnership with iGaming Academy, GSA’s membership operates across multiple time zones. We are now able to offer premium learning that is available on-demand, allowing our members to learn on their schedule,” GSA President Peter DeRaedt said.

The GAT protocol was developed over two decades ago with the aim of providing a mechanism that allows regulators and operators to verify that only approved software is running in gaming machines. The protocol is frequently updated and expanded as changes occur in the industry, and has just recently been revamped to include gaming systems as well as peripheral devices.

GSA’s and iGaming Academy’s online educational series provides an easily accessible platform for users to learn more about GSA’s standards, the impact they have had on the global gaming industry, and the potential they can bring to operators, suppliers, and regulators.

Relive the highlights from our last show and stay tuned for this year’s SiGMA. Watch out for what we’re branding as the ‘iGaming Village’ this year.
