PCI DSS And PA-DSS v2.0 Released

Hot off the presses. The PCI SSC’s Web site sports a new look and feel with the release of these new standards. Go to their Web site to download the new standards as well as updated supporting documents such as the Glossary and Summary of Changes.

Update: For a great review of the changes in PCI DSS v2.0, see Walt Conway’s analysis over at Store Front Back Talk.

    Looks like great changes all around — except for one. Prior to the website revamp, I’d always found it easier to use the PA-DSS listing of validated payment applications by way of downloading the Excel version, and using it that way. With the website redesign, it appears the ability to download the list in Excel format is no longer there 😦

    I have never been a huge fan of trying to navigate the PA-DSS listing on the website directly. I personally don’t think it’s as comprehensive or user friendly as the Excel version was. Has anyone experienced similar frustrations with the web-based search function on the PA-DSS listing? Any idea if the downloadable Excel version is coming back?
