Subject: [Servercert-wg] Voting Period Begins: SC-54 v2: Onion cleanup



Over the years the Server Certificate WG captured several minor cleanup issues related to Onion Certificates.

Here is a summary of the changes:

*	Created a Defined Term for Onion Domain Name. We discovered a lot of repeated long text describing what an onion certificate is, and thought it would be best adding as a definition
*	Removed EVG Appendix F contents since v2 onion certificates can't be used anymore; it is kept as a placeholder
*	Removed the obligation for the CA to ensure that the applicantSigningNonce includes specific entropy.
*	Tweaked a bit in the hopes of making the initial sentence shorter and easier to read.

The following motion has been proposed by Dimitris Zacharopoulos of HARICA and endorsed by Ben Wilson of Mozilla and Corey Bonnell of DigiCert.


This ballot modifies the “Baseline Requirements for the Issuance and Management of Publicly-Trusted Certificates” (“Baseline Requirements”), based on Version 1.8.1:
MODIFY the Baseline Requirements as specified in the following redline:
