PCI DSS Requirement 1.1.3 | Firewall at each Internet Connection | DMZ

Regarding PCI DSS Requirement 1.1.3, it is essential to note that this partly plays off of the network diagram/topology documents required for PCI DSS Requirement 1.1.2. How so? Because it is requiring your organization to ensure you have appropriate firewall measures (i.e., actual firewalls in place, correct configurations, etc.) within your overall network environment, complete with clearly identified Demilitarized Zone(s) (DMZ), along with illustrating protection for your internal networks. If you have this in place, it should be clearly shown on the network diagram/topology documents, thus you essentially will be able to partly meet the requirements put forth by PCI DSS Requirement 1.1.3. The other half of the requirement requires actually examining the firewall configurations, so you will need to be adept at reading configuration information, that is, firewall rules (also called rule sets)
