posted to the Public list and the Public web site.

      6. Application of DarkMatter for SCWG Membership

The Application was approved under the "Certificate Issuer" type.

      7. Validation Subcommittee Update

Wayne gave the update and informed the group that Ballot SC13 is in the 
Discussion Period which is almost over, and Tim would probably start the 
voting soon after. He encouraged Members that have not taken a look at 
that ballot to do so and make sure they don't see any issues with it.

He also mentioned about Tim's ballot to remove "any other method" in IP 
validation and will proceed similarly to the Domain validation by adding 
existing methods used by CAs regardless of how secure they think they 
are. There is some debate about one method a CA has proposed and they 
are not sure if it is well described to include in the BRs. That's one 
of the reasons holding this ballot back. However, he expects this ballot 
to go forward soon.

Finally, he mentioned about a discussion that is taking place on the 
mailing list about the organizationIdentifier attribute in the subjectDN 
field in EV Certificates that was previously discussed in London and 
Shanghai, where ETSI has a technical standard that includes this 
identifier in the subjectDN of EV Certificates. There is some ambiguity 
in the EV Guidelines about whether this is permitted or not. The 
Validation Subcommittee is trying to decide how to go forward with that 
in a way that both the technical requirements of the CA/B Forum and 
hopefully allow ETSI to move forward with their use of that field.

Dimitris asked when the next Validation Subcommittee was scheduled to 
meet and Wayne replied that it would be December the 6th.

      8. Network Security Subcommittee Update

Ben reported that the subcommittee is still looking for a date to 
schedule bi-weekly meetings. Most promising day is wednesday.
