We are looking to become PCI compliant and our servers right now are IIS 6.  We've found that following the recommendations of the PCI compliance tests and taking the recommended action does not actually resolve the issue.


From hitting our head off these walls we were wondering if any of you experts have had experience and more specifically success in making an IIS6 and IIS7 environment PCI compliant.

Is it easier to make an IIS7 environment PCI compliant over IIS6 or would this be solving the problem the wrong way?


Any advice on this would be hugely appreciated.

There are many things that make an environment complement. Each environment is different and you have different technologies involved. I must admit I have never had any problems with either.

You will still have to do things in a IIS7 environment. Upgrading/migrating to another environment can be a hugely time consuming process and not to be taken lightly. But you should be looking at upgrading from IIS6 at some point anyway as it is 8+ years old now. And at least planning for the upgrade. Personally i would tweak your IIS6 setup to be compliant, there is not too much solely on the Windows/ IIS side to do. You might have other things that you have  problem with code, connectivity with db, firewall config, etc that you will have to do independently of a migration anyway.

What problems are you getting and as I ask any pen test queries here, are they real problems or just what some automated scan guessed might be a problem in certain configuration and don't apply in your case.

What specific problems are you getting?

If there are too many please ask in multiple questions.
