AWS achieves its first PCI 3DS attestation

We are pleased to announce that Amazon Web Services (AWS) has achieved its first PCI 3-D Secure (3DS) certification. Financial institutions and payment providers are implementing 3-D secure services to support application-based authentication, integration with digital wallets, and browser-based e-commerce transactions. Although AWS doesn’t perform 3DS functions directly, the AWS PCI 3DS attestation of compliance enables customers to attain their own PCI 3DS compliance for their services running on AWS.

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

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

To learn more about our PCI program and other compliance and security programs, please visit the AWS Compliance Programs page.
