Apparently May comes after April, not March.

Ballot 198 - .Onion Revisions

Appendix F of the EV Guidelines in unclear on what a CA does with the Tor
Service Descriptor Hash extension. This ballot clarifies that inclusion of
the extension in the TBSCertificate is required. 

The following motion has been proposed by Jeremy Rowley of DigiCert and
endorsed by Ryan Sleevi of Google and Erwann Abalea of DocuSign France to
introduce new Final Maintenance Guidelines for the "Guidelines for the
Issuance and Management of Extended Validation Certificates" (EV
Guidelines).

-- MOTION BEGINS -

Revise Appendix F, Section 1 to read as follows:

Appendix F - Issuance of Certificates for .onion Domain Names

A CA may issue an EV Certificate containing the .onion Domain Name provided
that issuance complies with the requirements set forth in this Appendix:

1.	CAB Forum Tor Service Descriptor Hash extension (2.23.140.1.31)

The CAB Forum extension in of the TBSCertificate to convey hashes of keys
related to .onion addresses.  The CA MUST include the Tor Service Descriptor
Hash extension using the following format:

cabf-TorServiceDescriptorHash OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::= { 2.23.140.1.31 }

TorServiceDescriptorHash:: = SEQUENCE { 

algorithm                        AlgorithmIdentifier

subjectPublicKeyHash   BIT STRING              }

Where the AlgorithmIdentifier is a hashing algorithm (defined in RFC 6234)
performed over the raw Public Key of the .onion service and
SubjectPublicKeyHash is the value of the hash output of the raw Public Key.
