S/MIME BRs section provide methods to verify name, address and unique identifier in. Section 3.2.6 requires section to be used to verify the Reliable Method of Communication.

EV Guidelines have defined QGIS, QTIS, and QIIS, which can be used to verify "Place of Business" and "Verified Method of Communication." I believe we can say that these would be similar to "address" and "Reliable Method of Communication" referred to in the S/MIME BRs and also the SSL BRs and CSBRs.

It could be argued that QGIS and QTIS are similar to "A government agency in the jurisdiction of the Legal Entity's creation, existence, or recognition" which is allowed in section So maybe QGIS and QTIS are already covered.

It is proposed that QIIS be added to the list in S/MIME BR section, which could be used to verify the "address" and "Reliable Method of Communication." The benefit is the CAs which already use QIIS for these items can extend to verification for S/MIME certificates.

Thanks, Bruce.
