      4. Approval of Minutes of previous teleconference

The minutes of CABF F2F Meeting 45 of Oct 17-18, 2018 were not approved 
because of missing minutes. We kindly ask the remaining minute takers to 
publish their minutes to the wiki or contact the Chair if there is a 

      5. Follow-up items from SCWG F2F meeting


      6. Validation Subcommittee Update

The Subcommittee continued the discussion about the limitation of 
validation methods via CAA, considered the result of the discussion at 
the F2F meeting that there is not a lot of interest and decided to drop 
this work item.

Another discussion item was BGP hijacking. Tim H. would raise the issue 
in IETF because the CA/B Forum can't make any meaningful progress on 
that subject.

The Subcommittee is also preparing some ballots:

- The voting for the underscore ballot (SC12) will be initiated tomorrow 

- Ballot for removing "any other method" for IP address is under way

- SC4 ballot going forward, which allows adding an email address for 
Domain Validation in DNS TXT or CAA records. Tim's decision is to 
propose that both CAA and TXT is supported.

Finally, the Subcommittee discussed about possible improvements for 
Method 6, website control, and that's the next item the Subcommittee 
will focus on.

      7. NetSec Subcommittee Update

A doodle poll was sent out to decide when the best meeting date/time is. 
Ben will check the results of that poll.

/Pending question in the questions list/

Kirk reminded the participants that we have a pending question to 
respond to in the questions list. Dean said that he needs some more help 
with a reply. He will draft a response and send it to Ryan for comments 
before proceeding.

/Comodo CA changing to SECTIGO/

Dimitris mentioned that Comodo CA has changed its name to Sectigo and 
asked for comments from Comodo representatives. Tim Callan from Sectigo 
responded and informed the group about the new name and that the primary 
motivation was to avoid market confusion. He mentioned that it also 
helps the market to know that this is a different company, different 
ownership, different philosophy.

Dimitris proposed that if the Bylaws don't specify how to handle a 
Member changing its name, we should ask Sectigo to sign the IPR 
agreement under their new name. Kirk agreed that we probably need a new 
IPR agreement. Tim Callan gave us his email address so we can contact 
him for details about the IPR agreement.
