On October 28, 2013, the CAB Forum chartered the SSL Performance Working Group.

Scope: the Working Group shall consider all matters having a bearing on software deployments which use SSL and the Web PKI. Examples might include: certificate contents, choice of proposed ciphers, webserver configuration, and OCSP configuration.

Deliverables: the Working Group shall produce one or more documents giving best practice guidance for getting the best performance from a SSL deployment which uses the Web PKI while still providing acceptable levels of security. The expectation is that such documentation will be submitted to the Forum for publication as (a) non-binding Forum document(s).

Expiration Date:  the Working Group shall expire twenty-seven months (“one EV”) from the passing of this resolution, unless extended by a further ballot of the Members, such a ballot to specify the extension period and any necessarily modifications of the scope and deliverables.
