      5. Validation Subcommittee Update

Tim H. gave the update. There was a brief discussion for SC17 on the 
validation subcommittee call. There will be a new version coming up 
later today or tomorrow trying to resolve some parsing ambiguities due 
to the "hyphen" character. There will be at least one more version sent 
out before voting begins. The SC also discussed method 10 and Ryan was 
going to report on the status of the new ALPN RFC at IETF. The SC is 
also looking for a volunteer to draft a ballot for improving method 6.

      6. NetSec Subcommittee Update

Ben gave the report. The SC is working on a draft ballot to improve the 
language of 1.h of the network security requirements (the one that 
discusses about monitoring and detection of issues in logs). Move it in 
another section that is more suitable for monitoring and alerting.

There was discussion about differences between online and offline CAs 
which should probably be taken into account and resolved before trying 
to work on 1.h.

Another ballot which is about log integrity and integrity controls. The 
SC has concerns about the "human review" factor and try to focus more on 
automated tools and DE-emphasize the human review element.

Reorganize the framework using for the NetSec requirements, creating 
some high-level statements and then expanding to some granular 
statements. 6 major principles that need to be followed:

 1. implementing an information security program (should be based on
    other industry standards) annotated section which will
    cross-reference other standards as examples.
 2. discussion about trusted roles (properly vetted) with some expectations
 3. maintain secure networks and CA systems, which has about 10 controls
    currently associated with it.
 4. strong access control measures, which has about 10-15 controls
    currently associated with it.
 5. monitoring and testing networks and systems, logging and alerting
 6. vulnerability scanning and patch management, currently in section 4
    of the Network Security Requirements.

Wayne asked if this was going to be one big ballot and Ben responded 
that it would need to be broken down to smaller ballots.
