OWASP PCI toolkit is an Open Source c# Windows form project, that will help you to scope the PCI-DSS requirements for your System Components. Beta version of this tool will be released May 2014


The PCI toolkit is based on a decision tree assessment methodology, which helps you identify if your web applications are part of the PCI-DSS scope and how to apply the PCI-DSS requirements. By decomposing , one by one , you will be able to create an assessment and a final report of your scope delimitation and which OWASP guidelines must be used

Important Notice

Understanding of security vulnerabilities and the OWASP top ten is essential for using properly this scoping tool. The tool helps you identify if the application falls within the PCI-DSS scope in order to become compliant however it is essential to identify if your organization has the necessary tools and know-how to be able to create a scope

  • Knowledge of the OWASP top ten
  • Knowledge of penetration tests and tools as advised by the PCI security council (ASV vendors)

What is PCI-DSS?

The PCI Security Standards Council offers robust and comprehensive standards and supporting materials to enhance payment card data security. These materials include a framework of specifications, tools, measurements and support resources to help organizations ensure the safe handling of cardholder information at every step. The keystone is the PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), which provides an actionable framework for developing a robust payment card data security process -- including prevention, detection and appropriate reaction to security incidents.

How does the PCI toolkit work?

The toolkit helps you identify if the application falls into the PCI-DSS scope and the necessary measures that must be taken in order to become compliant. The tool by it self does not scan your application but it guides you on the available tools, guidelines and documents related to understand much better how to properly execute the scope and test the application against security vulnerabilities

What is the purpose of this tool?

The main purposes is to offer an interactive guideline on how to determine if a web application falls into the PCI-DSS scope. The PCI-DSS requirements do not specify which guidelines , tools or how to implement the requirements, this tool helps you understand how to do it.
