The Payment Application Data Security Standard has been developed by the PCI Security Standards Council for payment application vendors. All non-customized applications sold by any payment application vendor needs to be validated for PA-DSS. When using these applications customers store or transmit cardholder data and are required to be PCI DSS compliant. Hence, these payment applications need to facilitate their customers and for this PA-DSS compliance is required. Payment applications secured in compliance with the PA Data Security Standard minimize breach of security and help protect magnetic stripe data, PINs and card verification codes. Version 3 of the PA –DSS was released in Nov 2013.
