Subject: [EXTERNAL][cabfpub] Ballot 189 (revised) - Amend Section 6.1.7 of Baseline Requirements

 


After the recent discussion, the ballot is now updated with simpler language. Voting starts tomorrow April 6th.

Dimitris.

Ballot 189 - Amend Section 6.1.7 of Baseline Requirements 

The following motion has been proposed by Dimitris Zacharopoulos of HARICA and endorsed by Bruce Morton of Entrust and Jeremy Rowley of Digicert 

Background: 

Section 6.1.7 of the Baseline Requirements states that the Root CA Private Keys MUST NOT be used to sign end-entity certificates, with some exceptions. It is unclear if this exception list includes end-entity certificates with EKU id-kp-timeStamping. This ballot attempts to clarify two things: 

1.	that it affects Root Keys in a hierarchy that issues SSL Certificates and 
2.	that it does not include time stamping certificates in the exception list. 

It also clears the exception language for 1024-bit RSA Subscriber Certificates and testing products with Certificates issued by a Root. 

-- MOTION BEGINS -- 

Current section 6.1.7 

Root CA Private Keys MUST NOT be used to sign Certificates except in the following cases: 

1.	Self-signed Certificates to represent the Root Certificate itself; 
2.	Certificates for Subordinate CAs and Cross Certificates; 
3.	Certificates for infrastructure purposes (e.g. administrative role certificates, internal CA operational device certificates, and OCSP Response verification Certificates); 
4.	Certificates issued solely for the purpose of testing products with Certificates issued by a Root CA; and 
5.	Subscriber Certificates, provided that: 

a.	The Root CA uses a 1024-bit RSA signing key that was created prior to the Effective Date; 
b.	The Applicant’s application was deployed prior to the Effective Date; 
c.	The Applicant’s application is in active use by the Applicant or the CA uses a documented process to establish that the Certificate’s use is required by a substantial number of Relying Parties; 
d.	The CA follows a documented process to determine that the Applicant’s application poses no known security risks to Relying Parties; 
e.	The CA documents that the Applicant’s application cannot be patched or replaced without substantial economic outlay. 
f.	The CA signs the Subscriber Certificate on or before June 30, 2016; and 
g.	The notBefore field in the Subscriber Certificate has a date on or before June 30, 2016 

Proposed section 6.1.7 

Private Keys corresponding to Root Certificates MUST NOT be used to sign Certificates except in the following cases: 

1.	Self-signed Certificates to represent the Root CA itself; 
2.	Certificates for Subordinate CAs and Cross Certificates; 
3.	Certificates for infrastructure purposes (administrative role certificates, internal CA operational device certificates) 
4.	Certificates for OCSP Response verification; 

These changes become Effective 30 days after the ballot passes.
