What is the difference between P2PE and E2EE?
The main difference between the two is that a P2PE connection entails a direct link to a network. An E2EE system may be managed by an outside party, although that group will ensure all data remains encrypted while in transit. P2PE and E2EE systems will utilize different security rules.

Is your P2PE solution listed or non-listed?

What is a P2PE report on validation (P-ROV)?
The results of the assessment are then documented using the P2PE Report on Validation (P-ROV) template which is submitted directly to the PCI-SSC for final review. Once a representative of the PCI-SSC has approved and signed the submitted P-ROV, the solution will receive an official listing on the PCI website.
Why Nesa for pci-p2pe compliance?
Since the PCI-P2PE standard is still relatively new, and the process of implementing and validating a new or existing solution can be quite lengthy, the NESA process gives solution providers the ability to provide a degree of security assurance to customers, along with limited scope reduction, while they work towards a validated listing.
