PCI (Payment Card Industry Security Standard)_Req 2.2.1

PCI (Payment Card Industry Security Standard)

Do not use vendor-supplied defaults for system passwords and other security measures

Req 2.2.1

2.2.1 Implement only one primary function per server to prevent functions that require different security levels from co-existing on the same server. (for example web servers database servers and DNS should be implemented on separate servers.) Note: where virtualization technologies are in use implement only one primary function per virtual system component.

If server functions that need different security levels are located on the same server the security level of the functions with higher security needs would be reduced due to the presence of the lower-security functions. Additionally the server functions with a lower security level may introduce security weaknesses to other functions on the same server. By considering the security needs of different server functions as part of the system configuration standards and related processes organizations can ensure that functions requiring different security levels don’t co-exist on the same server.
