Now all hopes are pinned on Apple, a company known for its ability to enter a challenging market and change the environment with one impeccable product.

  • Mobile Applications and PA-DSS

    10 December 2014
    By Roman Denisenko, Senior QA

    I often receive questions that start with “I’ve got a great mobile application and I am going to add the ability to make payments. But I am a bit worried because of the PCI PA-DSS standard.”

    The situation is so typical that I’ve finally decided to write an article dedicated to PCI PA-DSS and what to do about it.

    To start with, let`s refresh our knowledge about the PCI PA-DSS standard and maybe even learn something new.

    As you remember, the PCI PA-DSS standard is mostly known for enhancing the security of payment applications. Overall, every application that works within the PCI DSS-compliance infrastructure should be PCI PA-DSS compliant.

    Let`s drill down into the requirements.
