AWS achieves its very first PCI 3DS attestation

We are very happy to announce that Amazon Web Services (AWS) has achieved its first PCI 3-D Secure (3DS) certification. Finance institutions and payment providers are implementing EMV® 3-D Secure services to aid application-based authentication, integration with digital wallets, and browser-based e-commerce dealings. Although AWS doesn’t directly perform 3DS functions, the AWS PCI 3DS attestation of compliance allows customers to attain their very own PCI 3DS compliance because of their services running in AWS.

All AWS regions in scope for PCI DSS were contained in the 3DS attestation. AWS was assessed by Coalfire, an unbiased Qualified Security Assessor (QSA).

AWS compliance reports, including this latest PCI 3DS attestation, can be found on demand through AWS Artifact. The 3DS package obtainable in AWS Artifact includes the 3DS Attestation of Compliance (AOC) and Shared Responsibility Guide.

For more information about our PCI program along with other security and compliance programs, please go to the AWS Compliance Programs page.
