Ballot SC15 version 2: Remove Validation Method Number 9
Purpose of Ballot: Method 9, Test Certificate, is insecure when web hosting platforms use a single IP address for more than one Domain Name, so this method must not be used.
The following motion has been proposed by Doug Beattie of GlobalSign and endorsed by Bruce Morton of Entrust Datacard and Ryan Sleevi of Google.
--- MOTION BEGINS ---
This ballot modifies the "Baseline Requirements for the Issuance and Management of Publicly-Trusted Certificates" as follows, based on Version 1.6.2:
Replace the content of section 220.127.116.11.9 with:
This method has been retired and MUST NOT be used. Prior validations using this method and validation data gathered according to this method SHALL NOT be used to issue certificates.
--- MOTION ENDS ---
*** WARNING ***: USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. THE REDLINE BELOW IS NOT THE OFFICIAL VERSION OF THE CHANGES (CABF Bylaws, Section 2.4(a)):
