BALLOT SC51: Reduce and Clarify Audit Log and Records Archival Retention Requirements
PURPOSE OF BALLOT
The purpose of this ballot is to consolidate and clarify aspects of audit log and records archival retention expectations and time-periods within 5.5.2.
Foremost, this ballot reduces retention periods for records archival to 2 years.
Further, currently audit log events as outlined in section 5.4.1, and then referenced in 5.4.3 lead to confusion around the log retention that is defined and exclusive to each section, and how that retention feeds into records archival requirements. To further clarify the objectives of that interaction, an explicit requirement has been introduced in 5.5.1 stating that CAs must archive lifecycle event records.
As minor adjustments to related requirements, this ballot also clarifies what is expected by the term “OCSP Entries” as a logged lifecycle event; as OCSP Entry is an undefined term, this was replaced with OCSP Response such that it should be clear that a CA will be logging the event of signing an OCSP Response (including the elements stipulated in 5.4.1). Similarly, some certificate lifecycle events expected to be retained are currently separated into 5.5.2; these have been incorporated into 5.4.1 instead. This ballot also explicitly calls out the need for delegated third parties to abide by the established retention periods for audit logging and records archival procedures.
This ballot also formalizes incorporation of terms defined in the NCSSRs as also applying to the BRs.
The following motion has been proposed by Clint Wilson of Apple and endorsed by Trevoli Ponds-White of Amazon and Dustin Hollenback of Microsoft.
This ballot modifies the “Baseline Requirements for the Issuance and Management of Publicly-Trusted Certificates” as defined in the following redline, based on Version 1.8.1:
