AWS Cloud Map is now certified as a Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) service. AWS Cloud Map is a cloud resource discovery service. With AWS Cloud Map, you can define custom names for your application resources, such as Amazon Elastic Container Services (Amazon ECS) tasks, Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances, Amazon DynamoDB tables, or any other cloud resource. You can then use these custom names to discover the location and metadata of cloud resources from your applications using AWS SDK and authenticated API queries. AWS Cloud Map is a highly available, managed service with rapid change propagation. 

Customers can now use AWS Cloud Map to capture, transmit, and retrieve sensitive payment card data for use cases such as payment processing that are subject to PCI DSS.
