CSC-6 Subscriber Private Key Protection

Ian thought he had sent the draft to the list before the holidays but it was determined that was not the case. He will circulate it today. Seeking 2 endorsers. Tim mentioned he had some minor comments to send to Ian. Ian asked everyone to review and if comfortable, provide an endorsement.

CSBR Format change

Corey gave the attached presentation. The plan is to move the CSBRs as is and make normative changes after adoption.

A discussion about having multiple ballots in flight took place but it was decided to have CSC-6 move forward first, followed by this one.

Corey provided this link for the CS GitHub repository:

Dimitris presented a demo of GitHub and how to propose changes.

Other Business

Dean said that we need to start planning for the F2F meeting. A meeting for the various chairs was taking place next week and input as to time needed for the working groups would be good input. Bruce suggested we should request 1-2 hours and we can start working on signing services.

Next meeting is on January 27th
