Hi, Which version of PCI DSS does Airheads support?


Re: Hi, Which version of PCI DSS does Airheads support?

Airheads is a community platform and does not support PCI DSS.


You probably intended to ask a different question?


Given the 'Cloud Wi-Fi' topic you posted in, if your question was what PCI-DSS standard can Aruba Central report on, then the answer is PCI-DSS 2.0, and it reports on the PCI sections 11.4, 11.1, 2.1.1, 1.2.3 and 4.1.1: 




11.4 Use intrusion-detection systems and/or intrusion-prevention systems to monitor all traffic. A report will indicate a "pass" for the requirement if system is monitoring devices capable of reporting IDS events. Recent IDS events will be summarized in the report.
11.1 Test for the presence of wireless access points by using a wireless analyzer at least quarterly or deploying a wireless IDS/IPS to identify all wireless devices in use.
2.1.1 Change vendor-supplied defaults for wireless environments. A device fails if the passphrases, SSIDs or other security-related settings are on a list of forbidden values. The list includes common manufacturer defaults.
1.2.3 Install firewalls between any wireless networks and the cardholder data environment. A device passes if it can function as a stateful firewall.
4.1.1 Did not meet pass criteria because one or more SSIDs (rtv-guest) has weak encryption or is an open network.

Please note that a product cannot support PCI-DSS standards. PCI-DSS requires you to take the appropriate security measures, and some products help you to implement, others like Airwave or Central help you to report on the existence and sometimes effectiveness of those measures.
