5.  Security Considerations

   According to X.509, a certificate policy (CP) is "a named set of
   rules that indicates the applicability of a certificate to a
   particular community and/or class of applications with common
   security requirements."  A CP may be used by a relying party to help
   in deciding whether a certificate, and the binding therein, are
   sufficiently trustworthy and otherwise appropriate for a particular
   application.

   The degree to which a relying party can trust the binding embodied in
   a certificate depends on several factors.  These factors can include
   the practices followed by the certification authority (CA) in
   authenticating the subject; the CA's operating policy, procedures,
   and technical security controls, including the scope of the
   subscriber's responsibilities (for example, in protecting the private
   key), and the stated responsibilities and liability terms and
   conditions of the CA (for example, warranties, disclaimers of
   warranties, and limitations of liability).

   This document provides a framework to address technical, procedural,
   personnel, and physical security aspects of Certification
   Authorities, Registration Authorities, repositories, subscribers, and
   relying party cryptographic modules, in order to ensure that the
   certificate generation, publication, renewal, re-key, usage, and
   revocation is done in a secure manner.  Specifically, Section 4.3
   Identification and Authentication (I&A); Section 4.4 Certificate
   Life-Cycle Operational Requirements; Section 4.5 Facility Management,
   and Operational Controls; Section 4.6 Technical Security Controls;
   Section 4.7 Certificate CRL, and OCSP Profiles; and Section 4.8
   Compliance Audit and Other Assessment, are oriented towards ensuring
   secure operation of the PKI entities such as CA, RA, repository,
   subscriber systems, and relying party systems.

6.  Outline of a Set of Provisions

   This section contains a recommended outline for a set of provisions,
   intended to serve as a checklist or (with some further development) a
   standard template for use by CP or CPS writers.  Such a common
   outline will facilitate:

Top      Up      ToC       Page 54 
   (a) Comparison of two certificate policies during cross-
       certification or other forms of interoperation (for the purpose
       of equivalency mapping).

   (b) Comparison of a CPS with a CP to ensure that the CPS faithfully
       implements the policy.

   (c) Comparison of two CPSs.

   In order to comply with the RFC, the drafters of a compliant CP or
   CPS are strongly advised to adhere to this outline.  While use of an
   alternate outline is discouraged, it may be accepted if a proper
   justification is provided for the deviation and a mapping table is
   provided to readily discern where each of the items described in this
   outline is provided.

7.  Comparison to RFC 2527

   This framework represents an incremental improvement over RFC 2527.
   The new framework benefits from the experience gained in the course
   of deploying CP and CPS documents under RFC 2527.  Further, this new
   framework is based on coordination with the American Bar Association
   Information Security Committee within the Section of Science and
   Technology Law.  The ISC wrote the PKI Assessment Guidelines [ABA2],
   which embodies a great deal of technical, business, and legal
   experience in PKI operations.  In particular, representatives of the
   ISC made changes to the framework to better suite it to the legal
   environment and make it more accessible to lawyers.

   >From a technical perspective, the changes to the RFC 2527 framework
   were minimal and incremental, rather than revolutionary.  Sections
   3-7 have largely been preserved, with modest reorganization and new
   topics.  For example, the new framework includes a revision of
   Section 4 of the framework to include a full treatment of the
   certificate life-cycle, the addition of key escrow, key
   encapsulation, and key recovery policies and practices, and OCSP.
   Section 2 audit functions now appear alone in Section 8, and Section
   2 focuses exclusively on repository functions.  The business and
   legal matters in RFC 2527's Section 2 now appear in a new Section 9.

   From a legal perspective, the new Section 9 is useful because it
   places topics in the framework in an ordering that is similar to
   software licensing and other technology agreements and thus is
   familiar to technology lawyers.  Moreover, the framework as a whole
   can double as a framework for a subscriber, relying party, or other
   PKI-related agreement.  The changes are intended to make legal review
   of, and input into, CP and CPS documents more efficient.  Section 9
   also adds new legal topics, such as the privacy of personal
   information, liability terms, and duration of the effectiveness of
   the document.

   Section 1 of the new framework is largely the same as RFC 2527,
   although it increases coverage of PKI participants by breaking out
   subscribers from relying parties and adding a section for other
   participants.  It changes the "applicability" section to one covering
   appropriate and prohibited uses of certificates.  Also, it moves CPS

Top      Up      ToC       Page 61 
   approval procedures from RFC 2527's Section 8.3 into a collected
   policy administration section.  Finally, Section 1.6 adds a place to
   list definitions and acronyms.

   Section 2 of the new framework is a reorganization of Section 2.6 of
   the old framework.  Section 3 of the new framework is based on a
   division of the old Section 3.1 into two parts for naming and
   identification and authentication issues.  It adds new issues, such
   as the permissibility of pseudonyms and anonymity.  Old Section 4
   topics on audit logging, record archives, key changeover, compromise
   and disaster recovery, and CA termination have moved to Section 5.
   The remaining Section 4 topics have been expanded and reorganized to
   cover a complete certificate lifecycle.  New topics include items
   implicit in the RFC 2527 Section 4, but now explicit, such as
   certificate application processing, certificate modification, and the
   end of subscription.

   New Sections 5.1 through 5.3 are almost identical to their
   counterparts in RFC 2527.  The remainder of the new Section 5 is the
   topics moved from RFC 2527's Section 4, in the order that they
   appeared in Section 4.  Section 6 of the new framework is almost the
   same as the old Section 6, with some exceptions, such as the
   consolidation of old Section 6.8 (cryptographic module engineering
   controls) into Section 6.2.1 (now called "cryptographic module
   standards and controls") and the addition of time-stamping in a new
   Section 6.8.  Section 7 is almost identical to the old Section 7, the
   major change being the addition of a section covering OCSP profile.
   Section 8 is almost identical to RFC 2527's Section 2.7.

   New Section 9 contains business and legal topics that were covered in
   RFC 2527's Section 2, including fees, financial responsibility,
   confidentiality, and intellectual property.  It adds a section on the
   privacy of personal information, which has become a significant
   policy issue.  The "liability" Section 2.2 in RFC 2527 now appears in
   Sections 9.6 through 9.9, covering representations and warranties,
   disclaimers, limitations of liability, and indemnities.  Section 9.10
   adds a section concerning the duration of the effectiveness of
   documentation.  Section 9.12 collects terms concerning the way in
   which a document (CP, CPS, agreement, or other document) may be
   amended, formerly appearing in Section 8.1.  Section 9 includes
   "legal boilerplate" topics, some of which were in the old Section 2.
   Finally, Section 9.17 is a catch-all "other provisions" section where
   drafters can place information that does not fit well into any other
   section of the framework.

   The following matrix shows the sections in the old RFC 2527 framework
   and their successor sections in the new framework.

8.   Acknowledgements

   The development of the predecessor document (RFC 2527) was supported
   by the Government of Canada's Policy Management Authority (PMA)
   Committee, the National Security Agency, the National Institute of
   Standards and Technology (NIST), and the American Bar Association
   Information Security Committee Accreditation Working Group.

   This revision effort is largely a result of constant inspiration from
   Michael Baum.  Michael Power, Mike Jenkins, and Alice Sturgeon have
   also made several contributions.
