1.  Roll Call

2.  Read Antitrust Statement

3.  Review Agenda.  Agenda was approved.

4.  Approval of Minutes from teleconference of Feb. 8, 2018.  Ryan asked that approval of the Minutes be deferred until the next meeting so the discussion in the Minutes concerning the membership application for Dark Matter could be corrected.  Approval will be deferred to the March 22 meeting.

5.  Governance Change Working Group update.    Virginia said final documents for the proposed governance change (revised IPR Agreement, Bylaws, new Working Group charter) will be circulated in the Forum for discussion at the upcoming F2F meeting in two weeks.  The WG will also have a presentation for the F2F meeting, where any remaining issues will be worked through.

After that, the WG changes will be introduced in an updated Ballot 206 with a 7 day informal discussion period, a 7 day formal discussion period, and a 7 day voting period for approval.  In response to a question, Virginia said there would be a 90 day transition period between when the ballot is approved and the changes become fully effective – this will give members time to sign the updated IPR Agreement.  Ben recommended that members have their counsel start reviewing the new documents, especially the revisions to IPR Agreement.

6.  Policy Review Working Group update.    Dimitris said the WG’s work is complete as to uses of the term “CA” in the BRs and final call for review had been sent to the WG based on “Pull 84” of the draft.  The next step is to send the draft to the larger Forum group for their review.  Kirk asked when the WG’s remaining work would be done.  Dimitris said that was under discussion, but the WG was considering moving forward with the completed changes to the term “CA” in its own ballot and offering that now.

7.  Network Security Working Group update.  Ben said the WG was planning a draft ballot covering its recent work.  This might actually be three ballots: (a) one ballot updating miscellaneous terms, (b) one ballot updating the definitions of Root CA and certain Zones which are important in other parts of the NetSec requirements, and (c) one ballot updating multi-factor authentication and passwords.  Dimitris said the three ballots would be discussed in the upcoming F2F WG meeting to get feedback.  The WG still has more work to do to update the rest of the Network Security Requirements.

8.  Validation Working Group update.  Wayne noted there would be an all-day VWG meeting at the upcoming F2F meeting where all the existing domain validation methods would be reviewed in detail.  There had been a special call for involvement by Interested Parties, and the Chair had issued a blanket invitation to Interested Parties to participate in-person or remotely at the VWG meeting.  The ground rules for the all-day meeting will be discussed on the next regular VWG teleconference on March 1, and Interested Parties will be invited to that call also.

9.  Ballot Status - Discussion of ballots (See Ballot Status table at end of Agenda).  There was no discussion.

10. Revised Draft Agenda for March F2F meeting.  Kirk noted he had circulated a revised draft agenda for the upcoming F2F meeting, and a number of comments and suggestion had been included.  Dean discussed the special guest speaker on Thursday, and noted the presentation will be in a question and answer format that is moderated by Dean.

11. Any Other Business.  Shelly Brewer asked how she could participate at the F2F meeting remotely.  Ryan continued the discussion on the pending membership application of Dark Matter, as well as Dark Matter’s participation in the upcoming meeting as an invited Interested Party.

12.  Next call: March 22, 2018 at 11:00 am Eastern Time

13.  Adjourn
