Insert a new section at the end of section 13.2 of the Baseline Requirements with the following heading and text:

"13.2.6 Response for non-issued certificates

If the OCSP responder receives a request for status of a certificate that has not been issued, then the responder SHOULD NOT respond with a "good" status. The CA SHOULD monitor the responder for such requests as part of its security response procedures.

Effective 1 August 2013, OCSP responders MUST NOT respond with a "good" status for such certificates."

... Erratum ends ...

The ballot review period comes into effect at 21:00 UTC on 19 July 2012 and will close at 21:00 UTC on 26 July 2012. Unless the motion is withdrawn during the review period, the voting period will start immediately thereafter and will close at 21:00 UTC on 2 August 2012.
