4. Approval of minutes from last teleconference
Accepted without objections.
5. Forum Infrastructure Subcommittee Update
Jos Purvis provided an update. There was no meeting this past week. Jos
reported they are working on a password repository for access to the
infrastructure, listserv, etc. They are also discussing separating the
GitHub repository by documents. This will help as we continue to add
Several groups have asked for a GitHub “refresher”. Jos volunteered to
conduct a demo and explain the procedures in a 1 hour class. Contact Jos
The group is soliciting feedback on the new wiki, now that we are 1 year
Dean asked if the group could look at making it easy to update members
registries and mailing lists as the current process is cumbersome for
the volunteers to manage. Jos said once the mailing system is migrated
to AWS, then they can look at making this happen. Ryan said this was
discussed on other calls and confirmed that it is an issue.
6. Code Signing Working Group Update
Dean gave the report. The combined EV and Baseline document ballot
(CSCWG-2) passed and is in a 30 day IPR review. In the meantime,
the group is reviewing the “parking lot list” and is preparing to
make any corrections/changes necessary for a future ballot.
7. S/MIME Working Group Update
Stephen Davidson provided the update. The first real meeting was held
yesterday (since the initial kickoff). New members were voted in:
iTrusChina, SSC and Chungwa Telecom as Certificate Issuers and Teletrust
as an Interested Party. The overall approach was laid out and the
decision was made to begin with Certificate Profiles. Examples are being
gathered to see what work has been done in various standards and other
companies. The next meeting is August 19^th .
8. Any Other Business
Dean stated that he had some folks look at the CA/B Forum documents to
check for language that should be updated given the movement in the
technology industry to deprecate certain words like master/slave,
whitelist/blacklist, etc. The review found only 3 places in the BRs, EV
Guidelines and Code Signing guidelines that should be updated. He will
send a note to the list with the suggested corrections.
9. Next call
The next call will take place on August 20, 2020 at 11:00am Eastern Time.
