Thank you for the opportunity to discuss this topic.  My apologies for not
sending this sooner, EOY work (day job) and the holidays took over my time.


My AOB question on 12/14 was: 'would the group consider adding PCI HSM as an
acceptable certification for Code Signing workloads?'


Please find attached the PCI HSM v4 pdf from the PCI SSC documents page
mYWY1ZDdkMzdkYmUzYjQ5YjpoOkY> , filter by 'PTS'). Note that in this location
you have also the 'FAQs', which "enhance" understanding of various topics.


My reasons for suggesting this:

1.	PCI (PTS) HSM is a robust program for HSM evaluation in the payment
security space.
2.	The financial services world, while having some unique requirements
(in particular for PKI), is in my opinion not so different for overall
device validation
3.	FIPS 140-3 & FIPS 140-2 (now closed) CMVP programs have a long queue
that is delaying products by well over a year
4.	CC, while valuable in many markets, is not universal
5.	Adding PCI-HSM closes the loop across the main HSM evaluation
