Dean, Trend Micro will endorse.  But can we combine with some of the other non-controversial BR changes that have been circulating (I can't remember what they are) in a "miscellaneous" ballot?

Subject: [cabfpub] Pre-ballot on membership requirement update

I am looking for 2 endorsers for the following:

Section 2.1 (a)(1) says that Issuing CAs "actively issue certificates to Web servers..."

Section 2.1(b) of the bylaws lists the items needed in a membership application by CAs.
But that section does not ask the CA applicant to provide a 3rd party website where the CA/B Forum can validate that they are actively issuing certs to web servers.  We do however ask the applicant this question, after they have submitted their application. It would be helpful to have this in the bylaws so we don't have to go back and ask every time.

Specific change:

Add under 2.1(b)
(7) The URL of at least one third party website that is using a certificate from the applicant's CA which can be examined by Forum members
