Subject: [Servercert-wg] Ballot SC21: To Revise a Final Maintenance
Guideline - the Network and Certificate Systems Security Requirements
Ballot SC21: To Revise a Final Maintenance Guideline - the Network and
Certificate Systems Security Requirements section 3.e. to allow for
continuous, automated monitoring; edit section 3.f. to improve wording, and
add section 3.g. to establish a response time for automated alerts.
Purpose of Ballot
The Network and Certificate System Security Requirements committee is
proposing this ballot to revise the current requirements to better allow for
automation and continuous monitoring of systems. The goal of this ballot is
to remove manual efforts that can be less effective and more
resource-intensive than automated monitoring and alerting.
This ballot also adds specific requirements in terms of the timeliness for
addressing alerting from automated monitoring and alerting to ensure the
implementation of automation does not increase the length of time that a
potential issue could go without being detected.
It is proposed by Ben Wilson of DigiCert and endorsed by Trevoli Ponds-White
of Amazon and Fotis Loukos of SSL.com to revise the Network and Certificate
System Security Requirements (Requirements) as set forth in the following
language of Section 3 of the Requirements, to be EFFECTIVE ninety (90) days
after completion of the IPR Review Period:
*- BALLOT BEGINS -*
e. Monitor the integrity of the logging processes for application and
system logs through continuous automated monitoring and alerting or through
a human review to ensure that logging and log-integrity functions are
effective. Alternatively, if a human review is utilized and the system is
online, the process must be performed at least once every 31 days.
f. Monitor the archival and retention of logs to ensure that logs are
retained for the appropriate amount of time in accordance with the disclosed
business practices and applicable legislation.
g. If continuous automated monitoring and alerting is utilized to
satisfy sections 1.h. or 3.e. of these Requirements, respond to the alert
and initiate a plan of action within at most twenty-four (24) hours.
*- BALLOT ENDS -*
The procedure for approval of this ballot is as follows:
Discussion (7+ days)
Start Time: 19:00 UTC, Thursday, September 19, 2019
End Time: 19:00 UTC, Thursday, September 26, 2019
Immediately following the conclusion of the discussion period, one of the
above proposers/endorsers will announce commencement of the 7-day voting
period and will re-post this ballot in accordance with Bylaw 2.4.3.
If this ballot passes, then an IPR Review Period will occur in accordance
with Bylaws 2.4.5 and 2.4.6.
