i have a client who needs to keep PCI compliant who has remote users that connect via VPN to the main office to access network shares. the VPN has been set up for so long that nobody remembers how to add new users or change passwords. i want to suggest a WebDAV setup but i don't know what that will do to their PCI compliance. does anyone here have any experience with this setup?
Why is the user VPN solution is scope of PCI? Normally I would expect only the payment systems, which are segregated, to be in scope. Otherwise you could have a compliance nightmare when it comes to user desktops etc.
the company who does our PCI scans always flag the open VPN ports as a weakness, but not full critical problem, with the compliance. they also flag our ISP gateway as a problem preventing us from being fully compliant, despite the ISPs assurances they have it locked down for compliance. i suppose i should be asking this to the PCI folks, but i thought i'd post it here for any second opinions.
I would get another ASV. They obviously don't know what they are doing or are happy to do something which you don't need either way sounds dodgy. You shouldn't waste time and money scanning something which is clearly not in scope. But you are right, it is a question for your QSA.
