April 2017 CA Communication

ACTION 1: DOMAIN VALIDATION Update your CA's CP, CPS, and process documentation as necessary to clearly indicate the methods of domain validation that may be used. Currently, the only permitted methods of domain validation are those documented in section of version 1.4.1 (and not any other version) of the CA/Browser Forum's Baseline Requirements (BRs) . Section of version 1.4.1 of the BRs provides 10 different ways in which the CA may confirm that the certificate subscriber owns/controls the domain name to be included in the certificate, and your CP/CPS must clearly specify the procedures that the CA employs. Each documented procedure should state which subsection of it is complying with. Note that version 1.4.2 of the BRs does not contain all 10 of these methods, but it does contain section, "Other Methods", so the methods that were removed in version 1.4.2 of the BRs are still BR-compliant under that version. By Mozilla policy, CAs are not permitted to rely on the "Other Methods" section to use methods of domain validation that are not among the 10 listed in section of version 1.4.1 of the BRs. The IPR issues relating to the missing methods have been resolved, so Mozilla expects that they will soon be restored. When they are, Mozilla's policy will once again be that we accept all of the methods of domain validation explicitly listed in the latest version of the BRs. Please enter the date by which your CP/CPS will be updated to meet the above requirements (use format MM/DD/YYYY). Date must be before July 21, 2017. If your CA's included root certificates do not have the Websites trust bit enabled, then use the date 01/01/2015.

Chunghwa Telecom 2017 Jul 20 Last year, we had updated the domain validation method in accordance with the CABF Ballot 169 that we may use in our new CPS and our Policy Management Authority (PMA) had approved the new CPS. The new CPS was supposed to be further submitted to the competent authority (Ministry of Economic Affairs) in Taiwan for final approval. However, there were IPR issues for CABF ballot 169, so we suspended submitting of the updated versions of CPS to the competent authority. We hope CA/Browser Forum ballot 190 can be passed so that the methods of domain validation that may be used will soon be restored. If CABF passes ballot 190 in May 2016, we will submit our new CPS to the competent authority again, and it is anticipated that the new CPS can become effective before 08/31/2017

Cybertrust Japan / JCSI 2017 Jul 20 To meet above requirement, we Cybertrust Japan(CTJ) will update our CPS for JCSI-root, but please note that CTJ currently doesn't issue any SSL/TLS certificates under JCSI-root. In our CPS for the JCSI-root, CTJ wrote the same thing such as JCSI-root has no Subordinate CA and therefore CTJ will not issue/revoke subscriber certificates under Sub-CA under the current CPS. So, we'll update the CPS to indicate the methods of domain validation that may be used when CTJ start issuing SSL/TLS certs.
