PCI Compliance - Is it important to you that Notes & Domino play nice in this space?

By Andrew Pollack on 02/15/2009 at 09:20 PM EST

If your company takes or stores credit card data, you may be required to meet PCI Compliance standards. Not all credit card processing requires this -- it has to do with the volume of transactions and other things. If you have to comply, you know what a challenge it can be.

I spent a good part of last week working on an issue which was related to PCI Compliance and data being stored in NSF databases. While I can't go into details right now due to NDA, there are a couple of things I'd like to press for in the way Notes and Domino does things which would make it far easier to meet the requirements set forth by the credit card companies.

I believe that with what should be fairly minor functional changes, the Notes client and Domino server could be the easiest tools in the industry to use for managing data in ways that meet the very specific PCI Compliance requirements. Keep in mind, it can be done now, but I think it could be a great deal easier.

Before I start lobbying really hard for this, I'd love to hear from you guys out there as to how big an issue this is for you. Any stories?

Questions around storage of credit cards pop up from time to time. Could you
add a link to the PCI requirements website? (There is one isn't it?)

Yes, would love to have Domino work towards PCI Compliance just a little
easier.

Struggling with this right now, we have to provide evidence that our PCI data
is encrypted "at rest" and "in motion". Using secretencryptionkeys is an
obvious solution, but I have a hard time trying to get the Security guys to
believe me that data is encrypted in both states without documentation that
explains the detail of how SEK encryption is working on the Domino platform.
Providing a Guide for PCI compliance describing the affect each security
preference has on the data "at rest" and "in motion" would go a long way to
making this process easier.
