PCI DSS: Requirement 4   Encrypt transmission of cardholder data across open, public networks

Open, public networks include the Internet, WiFi, Bluetooth, GSM and other channels. All sensitive information must be encrypted during transmission over public networks, because it is easy and common for attackers to capture or divert the data. Misconfigured wireless networks and vulnerabilities in legacy encryption and authentication protocols continue to be targets of malicious individuals who exploit these vulnerabilities to gain privileged access to cardholder data environments. Action1 addresses this section of PCI at the endpoint level, making sure all wireless communications are configured properly with strong encryption enabled.
