Amazon CloudFront is now included in the set of services that are compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) Merchant Level 1, the highest level of compliance for service providers.

PCI DSS compliance is a requirement for any business that stores, processes, or transmits credit card data. Amazon CloudFront's PCI compliance now makes it easier for retail e-commerce, travel booking, ticket sale, or in-app purchase applications to integrate Amazon CloudFront as a part of their architecture and adhere to PCI DSS. Because Amazon CloudFront supports dynamic and static content delivery, customers such as e-commerce businesses can use the same secure service for whole site delivery to accelerate both the browsing and shopping cart experience for their site visitors.
