This new voting period is to fix a typo in the End timestamp of the voting period for the previous version of this ballot. The contents of the motion itself are identical. My apologies for the confusion.

This ballot aims to clarify the existing language around the use of delegated third-parties during domain and IP address control validation. It leaves the existing language in place, and adds specifics for the cases of DNS queries, WHOIS lookups, and contact with the Domain Name Registrat or IP Address Registration Authority.

Additionally, it places these same restrictions on CAA checking, with an effective date of 2024-05-15.

This ballot is proposed by Aaron Gable (ISRG / Let's Encrypt) and endorsed by Mads Henriksveen (Buypass) and Dimitris Zacharopoulos (HARICA). You can view and comment on the github pull request representing this ballot here:
