Ballot 138 - Security Information Sharing Working Group 

Kirk Hall of Trend Micro made the following motion and Ben Wilson of
Digicert and Dean Coclin of Symantec have endorsed it: 


During face-to-face Meeting 33, and on previous occasions, there were
discussions about how members of the Forum might be able to share
security-related information. One of the conclusions of these discussions is
that the issue needs further study. Additional details are found in the
scope statement in Ballot 138, which proposes the chartering a Security
Information Sharing Group. 

— Motion begins — 

The CA-Browser Forum shall create a Working Group, to be known as the
Security Information Sharing Working Group. 

Scope: the Working Group shall consider all matters relating to voluntary
information sharing among Forum Members relating to possible enhanced risk
from identified individuals, entities, identities, locations, domains, IP
addresses, and other data to be determined in order to allow Members to
determine, in their own judgment, whether to undertake additional
authentication or other steps before providing products or services to
customers. The Working Group will consider such issues as legal limitations,
privacy concerns, methods for updating or correcting information, and other
factors that may arise from such information sharing. 

Deliverables: The Working Group shall produce one or more documents offering
options to the Forum for voluntary information sharing within the scope
defined above. 

Expiration Date: The Working Group’s mandate shall expire twenty-four months
from the date this resolution passes, 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 -- 

The review period for this ballot shall commence at 2200 UTC on Thursday, 2
October 2014, and will close at 2200 UTC on Thursday, 9 October 2014. Unless
the motion is withdrawn during the review period, the voting period will
start immediately thereafter and will close at 2200 UTC on Thursday, 16
October 2014. Votes must be cast by posting an on-list reply to this thread.

A vote in favor of the motion must indicate a clear 'yes' in the response. A
vote against must indicate a clear 'no' in the response. A vote to abstain
must indicate a clear 'abstain' in the response. Unclear responses will not
be counted. The latest vote received from any representative of a voting
member before the close of the voting period will be counted. Voting members
are listed here: https://cabforum.org/members/ 

In order for the motion to be adopted, two thirds or more of the votes cast
by members in the CA category and greater than 50% of the votes cast by
members in the browser category must be in favor. Quorum is currently nine
(9) members– at least nine members must participate in the ballot, either by
voting in favor, voting against, or abstaining.
