The Future of PCI SSC Mobile Standards


The Council is currently working on the next evolution of its mobile security standards. To date, PCI SSC has two mobile standards: PCI Software-based PIN Entry on COTS (SPoC) Standard, which provides a software-based approach for protecting PIN entry on the wide variety of COTS devices, and PCI Contactless Payments on COTS (CPoC) Standard which addresses security for solutions that enable merchants to accept contactless payments using a smartphone or other commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) mobile device with near-field communication (NFC).
