The PCI 'standard' followed by Visa [which formerly had its
CISP standard versions] and MasterCard [similar but less
onerous] and the other card issuers are fairly elaborate as to
the level of security one has to observe to be compliant; It
is perfectly doable with CentOS, and one can 'pass' an
'assessment' and get a Qualified Accesser to sign off on a
CentOS based install; unlike the Wild West early days,
however, it is not at all trivial to attain; your upstream
processor will have a recommendation on what to use.
I would start by asking there. Doing otherwise is probably a
'premature optiization'. ;)
