No problem, I knew what you meant.  I just wanted to fish the topic out of your long email and emphasize it.


Since I’m on a plane on a Friday afternoon, and need some mindless work, I collected some references to refresh people’s memories:









Maybe on my flight on Tuesday I’ll have time to actually READ the links instead of just collecting them and posting them 😊

For sure. Apologies if that was worded confusing - we're hugely supportive of SRVNames, but solving the technical and policy issues around them is thorny and will require technical expertise, and I think most of the technical expertise of the Forum has been otherwise occupied by a number of more pressing matters (adoption of Certificate Transparency, strengthening of validation methods, reducing certificate lifetimes, etc)

We’re willing to continue talking through those issues in an attempt to reach a solution.  I do think SRVNames would be a useful improvement.  For us, the lack of movement has had more to do with time constraints than technical constraints!


While SRVNames do offer a way to scope the authority to a particular service (on any port), there's been no movement towards adopting them in the CA/Browser Forum, due to the issues they would have with technically constrained sub-CAs.
