Review of Agenda: There were no additions.
Approval of Minutes from Last Call of January 5, 2023: minutes were approved.
Next minute-taker – Bruce Morton (February 2, 2023)
Forum Infrastructure Subcommittee update – Corey Bonnell said two main topics were discussed—wiki migration beginning in February and replacement of some GitHub tooling for generating PDF and Word documents that is being deprecated. Ben also mentioned that he had added minutes pages for working groups to the website.
Code Signing Certificate Working Group update – Janet Hines said the group worked on alternate language for the ballot on malware revocations that they would be discussing next week. Also, in section 220.127.116.11.3 there are references to the SSL/TLS Baseline Requirements that need to be removed.
S/MIME Certificate Working Group update – Martijn Katerbarg said that they were working to incorporate some requirements (not before the effective date, but sometime early in 2024). Mozilla’s potential adoption of the S/MIME BRs was also discussed.
Network Security Working Group update – Ben Wilson said that the cloud computing sub-group was reviewing the Cloud Security Alliance’s security controls matrix, and on the last NetSec WG call they developed some narrative guidance language to proceed each of the four major sections of the Network and Certificate System Security Requirements.
Any other business: None
