Enterprise RA and Enterprise EV RA
* BR Enterprise RA definition - An employee or agent of an organization unaffiliated with the CA who authorizes issuance of Certificates to that organization.
* EVG Enterprise EV RA definition - An RA that is authorized by the CA to authorize the CA to issue EV Certificates at third and higher domain levels.
* Although EVG has added "EV" to the definition, the EVGs never reference "Enterprise EV RA", but only " Enterprise RA". Also, the CA must perform validation for EV and non-EV TLS certificates before issuance. The function of the Enterprise RA is to be able to allow certificates to be issued, based on the on the reuse of this data. I think "third or higher domain levels" actually restricts reuse for EV, but is not restricted for non-EV certificates.
My proposal is a follows:
EVG 4, delete, "Enterprise EV RA: An RA that is authorized by the CA to authorize the CA to issue EV Certificates at third and higher domain levels."
Note since EVG 4 states, "Capitalized Terms are defined in the Baseline Requirements except where provided below", Enterprise RA definition will be used from the Baseline Requirements.
