Payment Card Industry PIN Security (PCI PIN) is the security standard that defines the set of requirements for managing, processing and transmitting personal identification number (PIN) data during transactions or payments.

The PCI PIN ensures the security of online and offline card payments at ATMs, but also at attended and unattended point-of-sale (POS) terminals.

14 The PCI Security Standards Council has only certified 80 companies in the world as Qualified PIN Assessor (QPA) Companies and A2SECURE is one of them!

We are one of the few companies PCI PIN certified.


The PCI PIN security standard applies to different entities such as banks, payment processors and service providers that handle PIN-based card transactions.

Among the service providers subject to this standard are those that perform activities like acquiring, processing, storing or transmitting PIN-based payment transactions. The PCI PIN scope includes those actors that provide encryption management services associated with PIN-based payments, such as Key Injection Facilities (KIFs) and Certification and Registration Authorities (CAs and RAs).

Other entities may be included within the scope of PCI PIN if it is indicated by a payment brand.
