We are currently going through a PCI compliance project and I wanted to know IF our wireless network was IN-SCOPE. The PCI standard says that wireless systems connected to the CDE environment are in-scope; however, the wireless network in our environment would only have HTTPS access to the web server in the CDE -- the same access as someone from the Internet. Having said that, is our wireless network IN-SCOPE? Why or why not? Thanks in advance!

Take a look at this:

https://www.pcisecuritystandards.org/pdfs/PCI_DSS_Wireless_Guidelines.pdf

Page 5,6,7

If the wireless access point is wired to the inscope CDE environment, then those wireless clients are inscope, if the wireless access point is not wired to the inscope CDE environment but has logical access through TCP/IP to the inscope CDE environment, then it is not PCI compliant.
