Because the Forum’s Network Security Working Group expired last June, this ballot proposes to create a new SCWG Subcommittee to consider changes and improvements to the existing Network and Certificate Systems Security Requirements.

I will be the proposer – are there two endorsers?

Additional Information

Bylaws v1.9

Section 5.3.1 - Formation of Chartered Working Groups
(e) CWGs may establish any number of subcommittees within its own Working Group to address any of such CWG’s business (each, a “Subcommittee”). A CWG-created Subcommittee needs to be approved by the CWG itself according to the approval process set forth in the CWG charter, but approval of the Forum is not necessary. Subcommittees must exist under an approved CWG.
