Subject: [cabfpub] Ballot 146 - Convert Baseline Requirements to RFC 3647
Ballot 146 - Convert Baseline Requirements to RFC 3647 Framework
The Certificate Policy Review Working Group was chartered by Ballot 128 to
(i) consider existing and proposed standards, (ii) create a list of
potential improvements based on the considered standards that improve the
existing CAB Forum work product, (iii) evaluate the transition to a 3647
format based on the amount [of work involved]. One deliverable of the CP
Review WG was to propose a ballot to improve CA infrastructure based on
existing standards and documents and recommend whether to finish the 3647
conversion presented by Jeremy Rowley in January 2014.
The CP Review WG has met and concluded that the best path forward for the
Forum is to complete a conversion to the RFC 3647 for the Baseline
Requirements with an initial step that merely moves existing content from
the Baseline Requirements into the RFC 3647 format.
comments.pdf is the proposed RFC-3647-formatted Baseline Requirements for
the Issuance and Management of Publicly-Trusted Certificates.
Ben Wilson of DigiCert made the following motion, Tim Hollebeek from
Trustwave and Jody Cloutier from Microsoft have endorsed it.
Be it resolved that the CA / Browser Forum adopts the attached CA/B Forum
Baseline Requirements for the Issuance and Management of Publicly-Trusted
Certificates, v.1.2.5, effective upon adoption.
The review period for this ballot shall commence at 2200 UTC on Thursday 2

motion is withdrawn during the review period, the voting period will start
immediately thereafter and will close at 2200 UTC on 16 April 2015.
