Forum Infrastructure Subcommittee update given by Jos

  • No call was initiated, should review co-hosts.

Code Signing Certificate Working Group update given by Bruce

Discussed signing services and question about sub-committee, but high level discussion overall. Will go back to the group to discuss further

SMIME working group update given by Stephen

  • Laid out 4 types of email certificates. The goal is to get the entire S/MIME certs in to an auditable certificate profile ASAP.
  • The decision making on documents is cumulative, so it’ll show up later in different areas.
  • One of the biggest issues is on the validation types, since that will be different from current ballots and will be adopted from the existing CA/b Forum standards. Does adopting EV validation mean that it will go through to the profile
  • GlobalTrust (E-commerce monitoring) has joined as a certificate member, which means there are 28 members
    • Dean: they need to go through addition steps. They will work offline.

Fall F2F dates

  • Please check calendars. A poll will go out shortly.
  • End of October there is a conflict ICANN and WS#. Dean- it won’t be that late.
