There are financial networking providers like SAVVIS and others who
handle this. There are a number of others including parties with PCI-DSS
competence in their compliance models.

The evidence capture and maintanence requirements for these closed
networks are very strict so, they dont allow non-players to participate
in their activities.

The Banking Service orgs like DIRBOLD Financial for instance or NCR or
any of a couple dozen other providers do this type of thing...

What specifically are you looking to do with them?
