Ballot CSC-4 v1: Move deadline for transition to RSA-3072 and SHA-2
timestamp tokens


Purpose of the Ballot:


The current deadline for moving from RSA-2048 to RSA-3072 and from SHA-1 to
SHA-2 for timestamp tokens falls on January 1, 2021, which is inconvenient
due to code freezes due to the winter holidays.  This ballot delays the
deadline to June 1, 2021 for RSA-3072 and April 30, 2022 for SHA-2 timestamp


The following motion has been proposed by Tim Hollebeek of DigiCert, and
endorsed by Ian McMillan of Microsoft and Hugh Mercer of GlobalSign.




This ballot modifies the “Baseline Requirements for the Issuance and
Management of Publicly‐Trusted Code Signing Certificates" version 2.0
according to the attached redline.




The procedure for approval of this ballot is as follows:

Start Time: 2020-09-22, 12:45pm Eastern Time (US)

End Time: 2020-09-29, 1:10pm Eastern Time (US)
