Purpose of Ballot 

The Network Security Working Group of the CA/Browser Forum expired on June

The Server Certificate Working Group wishes to establish a Network Security
Subcommittee pursuant to Bylaws 5.3.1(e).

The following motion has been proposed by Dimitris Zacharopoulos of HARICA

System Security Requirements (NCSSR) or to create new requirements,
guidelines, or best practices. Among other activities, the Network Security
Subcommittee shall perform security analysis on typical CA Management
Systems offering options to the Server Certificate Working Group for
establishing minimal security standards. Risk analysis will also be used to
provide a better understanding of threats and vulnerabilities in Certificate
Management Systems. This process can be used to provide better reasoning and
justification of existing or future security guidelines.

4. Participation: Any member of the SCWG is eligible and may declare their
participation in the Network Security Subcommittee by requesting to be added
to the mailing list.

on mailing-lists where the mail-archives are publicly accessible, and the

Additional Information (not part of Ballot)

Bylaws v1.9

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.


Ballot 203: Formation of Network Security Working Group (v2) 


Purpose of Ballot: To form a Network Security Working Group to re-evaluate
the CAB Forum's Network Security Guidelines.


The following motion has been proposed by Gervase Markham of Mozilla and
endorsed by Jeremy Rowley of DigiCert and Moudrick Dadashov of SSC:




In accordance with Section 5.3 of the CA/B Forum Bylaws, the chartering of a
new Working Group requires a ballot. This ballot charters the Network
Security Working Group.


The CAB Forum's Network Security Guidelines were adopted in August 2012 but
have not been updated since. Significant doubts have been raised as to their
fitness for purpose in 2017. Therefore, the Working Group¡¯s charter will be
as follows:




1. Consider options for revising, replacing or scrapping the Network
Security Guidelines.



1. A report with one or more proposals for the future of the Network
Security Guidelines.

2. For proposals involving replacement, details of the availability and
applicability of the proposed alternative, and what modifications if any
would be needed to it in order to make it suitable for use.

3. For proposals involving revision, details of the revisions that are
deemed necessary and how the document will be kept current in the future.

4. For proposals involving scrapping, an explanation of why this is
preferable to either of the other two options.

5. If there are multiple proposals, optionally a recommendation as to which
one to pursue and an associated timeline.

6. A form of ballot or ballots to implement any recommendations.



The Working Group shall expire once the deliverables have been completed, or
on 2018-06-19, whichever happens first. The expiry date given above shall be
automatically postponed by 1 year on 2018-05-19 ("postponement date") and
each anniversary of the postponement date thereafter unless three or more
members separately or jointly request on the Public Mail List, within one
month prior to a particular postponement date, that expiry of this Working
Group not be postponed in that instance.
