Gervase Markham (Mozilla) made the following motion, endorsed by
Rick Andrews from Symantec, Richard Wang from WoSign, Ben Wilson
from DigiCert, and Ryan Hurst from GlobalSign:

- --- Motion begins ---

The CAB Forum shall create a Working Group, to be known as the
SSL Performance Working Group.

Scope: the Working Group shall consider all matters having a bearing on
software deployments which use SSL and the Web PKI. Examples might include:
certificate contents, choice of proposed ciphers, webserver configuration,
and OCSP configuration.

Deliverables: the Working Group shall produce one or more documents giving
best practice guidance for getting the best performance from a SSL
deployment which uses the Web PKI while still providing acceptable levels of
security. The expectation is that such documentation will be submitted to
the Forum for publication as (a) non-binding Forum document(s).

Expiration Date: the Working Group shall expire twenty-seven months ("one
EV") from the passing of this resolution, unless extended by a further
ballot of the Members, such a ballot to specify the extension period and any
necessarily modifications of the scope and deliverables.

... Motion ends ...
