comment PCI compliance can prevent fines?
This is mainly a legal question, so keep in mind that nobody here can provide you with legal advice. Best option is to consult a lawyer that's familiar with the laws that apply to your country and/or state.

comment Password protection of encryption and signature keys
The salt for the key should be a random value stored in plaintext in the file, along with the IV for AES. Don't bother storing the hash, just make the first 4 bytes of the encrypted data static (e.g. "MTKF") so you can check that the decryption produced a correct output.

comment Precedent for an in-house cardholder information server?
Welcome to StackExchange. The first part of your question (list of organisations) is not definitively answerable, and is not a good fit for this site, as per the FAQ. If it were the only part, your question would be closed as Not Constructive. However, your second part is interesting and a good fit. Might be best to edit out the first bit.
