PCI DSS 2.0

Posted September 16, 2010    Brad Hibbert

Yes its PCI time again.

PCI DSS 2.0 has just completed final review and is expected to come out next month. As indicated in the summary of changes document , there are no major changes expected. Refinements to better align standards, provide clarifications, increase merchant flexibility, and additional guidance on specific technologies including virtualization and web applications are expected (For example Requirement 2.2.1 will be clarified to further define the “one primary function per server” as it relates to virtualization).

Some of our customers were anticipating that the PCI severity levels were going to change. In fact, Requirement 6.2 is being adjusted to allow for a risk-based vulnerability assessment process so that those vulnerabilities with the highest ranking are addressed first, versus just patching everything within a 30 day period. This lends itself well to both Retina’s existing risk scoring capabilities and integrated patch module being released next month.

The updated standards are to be issued in final form on October 28th and are to be in effect on Tuesday, January 11, 2011. We continue to wait to see what PCI delivers in the way of details, and will rework our standard PCI reports to align with any changes to the 12 Requirements, shortly after it is released.

As a shameless plug, I should also mention that if you are in need of a PCI Approved Scanning Vendor (ASV), eEye is launching this service to our customers over the next several weeks. If you have the need, just contact our sales team.
