  <transaction_type>Purchase</transaction_type>
  <gateway_specific_response_fields>
     <card_stream>
       <cardstream_state>finished</cardstream_state>
     </card_stream>
  </gateway_specific_response_fields>
</transaction>

3DS Authenticated

A response from Cardstream may contain a three_ds_authenticated field. You can find this information in gateway_specific_response_fields. For example, a transaction could have something like this:

<transaction>
  <token>LgpTNGjsWQs9DwdxcbreUVz0R8p</token>
  <transaction_type>Purchase</transaction_type>
  <gateway_specific_response_fields>
     <card_stream>
       <three_ds_authenticated>Y</three_ds_authenticated>

  </gateway_specific_response_fields>
