Hi,

We are carrying out PCI-DSS project for our organization and i am presently
using ubuntu 11.10 desktop. Are there open source project planning software
available in Ubuntu?
Please suggest.

Hi there,

If you're after something fairly straightforward, albeit not specific to
PCI-DSS; OpenProj [1] runs well on most recent Ubuntu installs that I've
tried it on, and it'll do all the Gantt charts that you may need.

It also opens the Gantt charts (.mpp files) from the Microsoft Project
programs as well, should you wish to do that.

Hope that helps!

Matt

There are a few, but depending on the size of your PCI audit, you might
want to go with professional tools. What level? Merchant, or Processor? You
could use something as simple as a spreadsheet (I suggest LibreOffice) if
your engagement is small. Or, it may turn out you need something full blown
like Accunote (which is commercial, and hosted) if your audit is big
enough. I've been doing PCI for more than 5 years now, and I know what a
PITA it can be. Sometimes, more is better.

Sorry for this interruption/Intrusion,

May I know what PCI means ? I haven't ever heard of it and being a student
of CS would appreciate your help if you could answer me.

Thank you

Thanks for the reply Colin Law but I don't understand why a Software
Development organisation needs PCI (as being discussed by both the persons
involved in this conversation). Can anyone in this conversation explain?

about security, especially their clients data.

What a prompt reply Mr Steve Flynn.. Thanks for that info. That last part
comes to me enlightening. Going to share your answer in our class's group
mail.

And the answer is, "Anyone who takes credit cards as a form of payment."

Oh come on folks, PCI is a bus/socket standard for mother boards and
pluggin cards that fit them, whereas the link being bandied about as if the
Gospel according to Luke or whatever, hasn't a thing in common, or to do
with the OP's question.

So stop trying to be so damned smart at confusing a newbie who asked the
question because he actually wanted to know what it was. Credit card
processing data security has zero connection to his question.

For a link, somewhat emasculated because the actual standard is a
commercially published, for lots of money, paper, a copy of which is likely
only interesting to motherboard and compatible card makers, see

Quite the reverse - you've need to re-rad the thread.

More coffee required Gene.

The question, taken in context, is a software question not a hardware
question with the specific focus concerned with an *audit.*

Wrong answer is wrong. Go back and re-read the thread, only this time, read
for context. He wasn't asking about the bus standard. He was asking about
the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard. Thanks for being a huge
jerk though.

The posting marked Colin Law-4 was what I took to be the OP on the subject.
I do not have threading enabled in kmail because it tends to muck up other
stuff, and it was never able to follow a thread back to its origin anyway.

So, my apologies.

OK, thanks Colin law. Now it makes sense.. It means the audit is about
whether the organisation in question has all online payments by customers
in order. Is it that all?
