Subject: [cabfpub] Ballot 156 - Amend Sections 1 and 2 of Baseline


Ballot 156 - Amend Sections 1 and 2 of Baseline Requirements


The Policy Review Working Group has reviewed Sections 1 and 2 of the
Baseline Requirements and, as a result, suggests that certain changes be
made to them.  Based on the lack of urgency for these changes and other
considerations, the Working Group recommends that Certification Authorities
be given one year from the effective date of this amendment before they are
required to comply.  Therefore, the following motion has been proposed by
Ben Wilson of DigiCert and endorsed by  Tim Hollebeek of Trustwave and Robin
Alden of Comodo:





1) In Section 1.1, under Notice to Readers add a second sentence to read as
follows: "This document serves two purposes:  to specify Baseline
Requirements and to provide guidance and requirements for what a CA should
include in its CPS."


2) In Section 1.4.2 add "No stipulation."


3) In Section 1.5.2 add "Contact information for the CA/Browser Forum is
available here:  https://cabforum.org/leadership/ .  In this section of a
CA's CPS, the CA shall provide a link to a web page or an email address for
contacting the person or persons responsible for operation of the CA."


4) In Section 1.5.3 add "No stipulation."


5) In Section 1.5.4 add "No stipulation."


6) In Section 2.3 add "The CA SHALL develop, implement, enforce, and
annually update a Certificate Policy and/or Certification Practices
Statement that describes in detail how the CA implements the latest version
of these Requirements."


7) In Section 2.4 add "The CA shall make its Repository publicly available
in a read-only manner."


8)  These changes shall be effective immediately.  However, CAs are allowed
one year after adoption (i.e. 3 December 2016) to comply with this amendment
to the Baseline Requirements.




The review period for this ballot shall commence at 2100 UTC on Thursday, 19
November 2015, and will close at 2100 UTC on Thursday, 26 November 2015.
Unless the motion is withdrawn during the review period, the voting period
will start immediately thereafter and will close at 2100 UTC on Thursday, 3
December 2015. Votes must be cast by posting an on-list reply to this


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.
