PCI Considering Virtualization, Wireless Standards
The PCI Security Standards Council is considering regulatory changes to its existing Data Security Standards, with a new version on the horizon, according to NetworkWorld. Standards for virtualization and wireless technologies are also said to be on the agenda.
NetworkWorld quotes Lib de Veyra, chairman of the Security Standards Council as saying that a potential v1.3 or v 2.0 standard could be out by 2010.
de Veyra also said that the council might attempt at creating a guidance document for use of wireless. Implementation guidelines on use of virtualization technologies are also expected by this year-end. However, no deadlines have been set by the Council.
The council also announced a new board of advisors that includes Cisco and Citrix.
Meanwhile, the PCI Security Council introduced a new initiative last month for stricter certification and monitoring of unattended payment terminals and hardware security modules. This initiative comes under its PIN Entry Device Security Requirements program.
The PCI Security Standards Council was formed in 2006 by major payment card brands — American Express, Visa, Mastercard, Discover Financial Services, and JCB. v1.2 of the PCI Data Security Standards, more commonly known as the PCI DSS, was released in October last year.
