Ballot 143 - Formalization of validation working group






In order to address validation issues and inconsistencies in both the
SSL Baseline Requirements and the EV Guidelines, the CAB Forum has held
an informal working group previously referred to as the Extended
Validation Working Group now known as the Validation Working Group,
would like to modify its scope to include validation in the Baseline
Requirements as well as the EV Guidelines.  


Jeremy Rowley of DigiCert made the following motion, which was endorsed
by Rich Smith of Comodo and Kirk Hall of TrendMicro



Motion begins



The CA-Browser Forum formally establishes the Validation Working Group
as an official working group of the CAB Forum, replacing the previous
informal EV working group.  The scope of this working group is to
address issues arising under adopted CAB Forum standards related to the
validation of certificate information and the inclusion of information
in certificates.  


Scope: The Validation Working Group will consider all matters relating
to the validation and inclusion of information in certificates under
adopted CAB Forum guidelines. 


Deliverables: The Working Group shall produce one or more documents
offering options to the Forum for validation within the scope defined



Motion Ends
