> As discussed on the last call, below is the background and “application”
> from ETA for CA/B Forum Associate membership. For discussion on the next
> call:
> The Electronic Transactions Association (ETA)is a non-profit trade
> association representing the payments technology industry.  Our membership
> is diverse and includes payment networks, processors and merchant service
> organizations including independent sales organizations, point of sale
> manufacturers, and payment gateway providers, mobile technology companies,
> investment banks, commercial banks, and security companies.  Indeed, a
> number of CAB Forum members are ETA members by virtue of the work and
> interest in the payments industry.  Our organization’s core purpose is to
> lead the global growth of the electronic transactions industry. Our vision
> – how we see our role in this landscape – is to be recognized as the global
> hub for the growth and expansion of the electronic transactions ecosystem.
> The issues surrounding the expiration of SHA-1 hashing algorithm from
> publicly trusted certificates raised a number of important issues for the
> payments.  In an effort to address this matter, ETA has reached out and is
> seeking to work with the Forum to effectively address the challenges for
> the payment industry.  As such, we anticipate that there will be additional
> security issues that come to light, where our collaboration with the Forum
> can serve as a way to address mutual issues of concern well in advance of
> critical deadlines or a shortened window.


Is there any explanation as to why an Interested Party membership would be
insufficient to help accomplish those goals?
