Subject: [cabfpub] Ballot 145 - Operational Existence for Government


Ballot 145 - Operational Existence for Government Entities 




Because government entities aren’t operating as businesses, they are often
not listed with a QIIS, especially immediately after the entity is created
by either statute or order. The legal existence of these entities is
verifiable through a QGIS, but this source in many countries (especially
Arabic and African countries) does not always list a date of creation of
these entities. Operational existence exists to ensure organizations aren’t
fly-by-night scams/phishing entities. With government entities, these same
risks are not present as they are created directly by government action. 

Jeremy Rowley of DigiCert <https://www.cabforum.org/wiki/DigiCert>  made the
following motion, which was endorsed by Rich Smith of Comodo and Cecilia Kam
of Symantec. 


Motion begins 


Effective immediately, section 11.6.1 is modified as follows: 

11.6.1 Verification Requirements. 

The CA MUST verify that the Applicant has the ability to engage in business
by verifying the Applicant's, or Affiliate/Parent/Subsidiary Company's,
operational existence. The CA MAY rely on its verification of a Government
Entity’s legal existence under Section 11.2 as verification of a Government
Entity’s operational existence. 


Motion Ends 


The review period for this ballot shall commence at 2200 UTC on 19 Feb 2015,
and will close at 2200 UTC on 26 Feb 2015. Unless the motion is withdrawn
during the review period, the voting period will start immediately
thereafter and will close at 2200 UTC on 5 Mar 2015. Votes must be cast by
