With passage of Ballot 143, Formation of Validation Working Group, on February 19, 2015, the CA/Browser Forum created a Validation Working Group as follows:
Scope: The Validation Working Group will consider all matters relating to the validation and inclusion of information in certificates under adopted CA/B Forum guidelines.
Deliverables: The Working Group shall produce one or more documents offering options to the Forum for validation within the scope defined above.
Email List: This working group eliminates the EV Working Group, and current Forum rules on email lists will be applied to a new Validation Working Group mailing list, which means that posts will be public. Access to the list is available here: https://cabforum.org/mailman/listinfo/validation. Subscribers to the list will not have posting privileges unless they have reviewed the Forum’s IPR Policy and submitted a signed IP Rights Agreement v.1.
