Dan & Dinis,

I might be sticking my neck out here, but why hasn't the PA-DSS
standard ever been discussed?

I've been engulfed in it for 2 years now with some of the heaviest
hitters in the payment application industry. PA-DSS 2.0 blows away
anything else for software security in the SDLC. It's real metrics.

It's dead simple to substitute "sensitive authorization data" (a.k.a.
credit card stuff) for any other type of sensitive data. I've already
seen companies take the PA-DSS standard and retrofit it for their own
needs and develop their own software security programs based on it.
Completely brilliant IMHO.
