Electronic Signatures and Infrastructures (ESI) - Policy and security requirements for Trust Service Providers issuing certificates - Part 1: General requirements

The present document specifies generally applicable policy and security requirements for Trust Service Providers (TSP) issuing public key certificates, including trusted web site certificates.
The policy and security requirements are defined in terms of requirements for the issuance,  aintenance and life-cycle management of certificates. These policy and security requirements support six reference certificate policies, defined in clause 5.
A framework for the definition of policy requirements for TSPs issuing certificates in a specific context where particular requirements apply is defined in clause 7.
The present document covers requirements for CA hierarchies, however this is limited to supporting the policies as specified in the present document. It does not include requirements for root CAs and intermediate CAs for other purposes.
The present document is applicable to:
• the general requirements of certification in support of cryptographic mechanisms, including digital signatures and seals;
• the general requirements of certification authorities issuing TLS/SSL certificates;
• the general requirements of the use of cryptography for authentication and encryption.
The present document does not specify how the requirements identified can be assessed by an independent party, including requirements for information to be made available to such independent assessors, or requirements on such assessors.
NOTE: See ETSI EN 319 403 [i.2] for guidance on assessment of TSP processes and services. The present
document references ETSI EN 319 401 [8] for general policy requirements common to all classes of TSP
services.
The present document however provides in annex C, a checklist of the policy requirements specific to TSP issuing certificates (as expressed in the present document) including the generic requirements which are independent of the type of service (as expressed in ETSI EN 319 401 [8]).
The present document includes provisions consistent with the requirements from the CA/Browser Forum in EVCG [4] and BRG [5].

Elektronski podpisi in infrastruktura (ESI) - Zahteve politike in varnosti za ponudnike storitev zaupanja, ki izdajajo digitalna potrdila - 1. del: Splošne zahteve

Ta dokument določa splošno veljavne zahteve politike in varnosti za ponudnike storitev zaupanja, ki izdajajo digitalna potrdila javnih ključev, vključno s potrdili zaupanja vrednih spletnih mest.
Zahteve politike in varnosti so določene v smislu zahtev za izdajanje, vzdrževanje in upravljanje življenjskega cikla digitalnih potrdil. Te zahteve politike in varnosti podpirajo šest referenčnih politik digitalnih potrdil, določenih v točki 5.
Okvir za opredelitev zahtev politike za ponudnike storitev zaupanja, ki izdajajo digitalna potrdila v posebnem kontekstu, v katerem veljajo določene zahteve, je določen v točki 7.
Ta dokument zajema zahteve za hierarhije overiteljev digitalnih potrdil, vendar je to omejeno na podporo politik, opredeljenih v tem dokumentu. Ne vključuje zahtev za overitelje korenskih digitalnih potrdil in overitelje vmesnih digitalnih potrdil za druge namene.
Ta dokument se uporablja za:
• splošne zahteve za izdajanje digitalnih potrdil za podporo kriptografskih mehanizmov, vključno z digitalnimi podpisi in pečati;
• splošne zahteve za overitelje digitalnih potrdil, ki izdajajo digitalna potrdila TLS/SSL;
• splošne zahteve za uporabo kriptografije za preverjanje pristnosti in šifriranje.
Ta dokument ne določa, kako lahko opredeljene zahteve oceni neodvisna stran, vključno z zahtevami glede informacij, ki jih je treba razkriti takim neodvisnim ocenjevalcem, ali zahtevami glede takih ocenjevalcev.
OPOMBA: Glej standard ETSI EN 319 403 [i.2] za navodila v zvezi z ocenjevanjem procesov in storitev ponudnikov storitev zaupanja. Ta
dokument se sklicuje na standard ETSI EN 319 401 [8] za splošne zahteve politike, ki so skupne vsem razredom storitev
ponudnikov storitev zaupanja.
Vendar pa ta dokument v dodatku C določa kontrolni seznam zahtev politike, ki se nanašajo na ponudnike storitev zaupanja, ki izdajajo digitalna potrdila (kot je izraženo v tem dokumentu), vključno z splošnimi zahtevami, ki niso odvisne od vrste storitve (kot je izraženo v standardu ETSI EN 319 401 [8]).
Ta dokument vsebuje določbe, skladne z zahtevami organa CA/Browser Forum v smernicah EVCG [4] in BRG [5].

Foreword This European Standard (EN) has been produced by ETSI Technical Committee Electronic Signatures and Infrastructures (ESI). The present document is part 1 of a multi-part deliverable covering policy requirements for Trust Service Providers issuing certificates, as identified below: Part 1: "General requirements"; Part 2: "Requirements for trust service providers issuing EU qualified certificates"; Part 3: "Policy requirements for Certification Authorities issuing public key certificates". The present document is derived from the requirements specified in ETSI TS 102 042 [i.6] "Policy requirements for certification authorities issuing public key certificates" that has been updated as detailed in annex B.

Modal verbs terminology In the present document "shall", "shall not", "should", "should not", "may", "need not", "will", "will not", "can" and "cannot" are to be interpreted as described in clause 3.2 of the ETSI Drafting Rules (Verbal forms for the expression of provisions). "must" and "must not" are NOT allowed in ETSI deliverables except when used in direct citation. Introduction Electronic commerce, in its broadest sense, is a way of doing business and communicating across public and private networks. An important requirement of electronic commerce is the ability to identify the originator and protect the confidentiality of electronic exchanges. This is commonly achieved by using cryptographic mechanisms which are supported by a Trust Service Provider (TSP) issuing certificates, commonly called a Certification Authority (CA).

For participants of electronic commerce to have confidence in the security of these cryptographic mechanisms they need to have confidence that the TSP has properly established procedures and protective measure in order to minimize the operational and financial threats and risks associated with public key cryptographic systems.

SIST EN 319 411-1 V1.1.1:2016

ETSI ETSI EN 319 411-1 V1.1.1 (2016-02) 6 The present document is aiming to meet the general requirements of the international community to provide trust and confidence in electronic transactions including, amongst others, applicable requirements from Regulation (EU) No 910/2014 [i.14] and those from CA/Browser Forum, BRG [5]. Bodies wishing to establish policy requirements for TSPs issuing certificates in a regulatory context other than the EU can base their requirements on those specified in the present document and specify any additional requirements in a manner similar to ETSI EN 319 411-2 [i.5], which builds on the present document requirements so as to benefit from the use of generally accepted global best practices.

Introduction

Electronic commerce, in its broadest sense, is a way of doing business and communicating across public and private

networks. An important requirement of electronic commerce is the ability to identify the originator and protect the

confidentiality of electronic exchanges. This is commonly achieved by using cryptographic mechanisms which are

supported by a Trust Service Provider (TSP) issuing certificates, commonly called a Certification Authority (CA).

For participants of electronic commerce to have confidence in the security of these cryptographic mechanisms they

need to have confidence that the TSP has properly established procedures and protective measure in order to minimize

the operational and financial threats and risks associated with public key cryptographic systems.

ETSI
---------------------- Page: 5 ----------------------
6 ETSI EN 319 411-1 V1.1.1 (2016-02)

The present document is aiming to meet the general requirements of the international community to provide trust and

confidence in electronic transactions including, amongst others, applicable requirements from Regulation (EU)

No 910/2014 [i.14] and those from CA/Browser Forum, BRG [5].

Bodies wishing to establish policy requirements for TSPs issuing certificates in a regulatory context other than the EU

can base their requirements on those specified in the present document and specify any additional requirements in a

manner similar to ETSI EN 319 411-2 [i.5], which builds on the present document requirements so as to benefit from

the use of generally accepted global best practices.

1 Scope

The present document specifies generally applicable policy and security requirements for Trust Service Providers (TSP)

issuing public key certificates, including trusted web site certificates.

The policy and security requirements are defined in terms of requirements for the issuance, maintenance and life-cycle

management of certificates. These policy and security requirements support six reference certificate policies, defined in

clause 5.

A framework for the definition of policy requirements for TSPs issuing certificates in a specific context where

particular requirements apply is defined in clause 7.

The present document covers requirements for CA hierarchies, however this is limited to supporting the policies as

specified in the present document. It does not include requirements for root CAs and intermediate CAs for other

purposes.
The present document is applicable to:

• the general requirements of certification in support of cryptographic mechanisms, including digital signatures

and seals;

• the general requirements of certification authorities issuing TLS/SSL certificates;

• the general requirements of the use of cryptography for authentication and encryption.

The present document does not specify how the requirements identified can be assessed by an independent party,

including requirements for information to be made available to such independent assessors, or requirements on such

assessors.

NOTE: See ETSI EN 319 403 [i.2] for guidance on assessment of TSP processes and services. The present

document references ETSI EN 319 401 [8] for general policy requirements common to all classes of TSP

services.

The present document however provides in annex C, a checklist of the policy requirements specific to TSP issuing

certificates (as expressed in the present document) including the generic requirements which are independent of the type

of service (as expressed in ETSI EN 319 401 [8]).

The present document includes provisions consistent with the requirements from the CA/Browser Forum in EVCG [4]

and BRG [5].

Introduction

Electronic commerce, in its broadest sense, is a way of doing business and communicating across public and private

networks. An important requirement of electronic commerce is the ability to identify the originator and protect the

confidentiality of electronic exchanges. This is commonly achieved by using cryptographic mechanisms which are

supported by a Trust Service Provider (TSP) issuing certificates, commonly called a Certification Authority (CA).

For participants of electronic commerce to have confidence in the security of these cryptographic mechanisms they

need to have confidence that the TSP has properly established procedures and protective measure in order to minimize

the operational and financial threats and risks associated with public key cryptographic systems.

6 Draft ETSI EN 319 411-1 V1.0.0 (2015-06)

The present document is aiming to meet the general requirements of the international community to provide trust and

confidence in electronic transactions including, amongst others, applicable requirements from Regulation (EU)

No 910/2014 [i.15] and those from CA/Browser Forum, BRG [5].

Bodies wishing to establish policy requirements for TSPs issuing certificates in a regulatory context other than the EU

can base their requirements specified in the present document and specifying any additional requirements in a manner

similar to ETSI EN 319 411-2 [i.5], which builds on the present document requirements so as to benefit from the use of

generally accepted global best practices.

1 Scope

The present document specifies generally applicable policy and security requirements for Trust Service Providers (TSP)

issuing public key certificates, including trusted web site certificates.

The policy and security requirements are defined in terms of requirements for the issuance, maintenance and life-cycle

management of certificates. These policy and security requirements support six reference certificate policies, defined in

clause 5.

A framework for the definition of policy requirements for TSPs issuing certificates in a specific context where

particular requirements apply is defined in clause 7.
The present document is applicable to:

• the general requirements of certification in support of cryptographic mechanisms, including digital signatures

and seals;

• the general requirements of certification authorities issuing TLS/SSL certificates;

• the general requirements of the use of cryptography for authentication and encryption.

The present document does not specify how the requirements identified can be assessed by an independent party,

including requirements for information to be made available to such independent assessors, or requirements on such

assessors.

NOTE: See ETSI EN 319 403 [i.2] for guidance on assessment of TSP processes and services. The present

document references ETSI EN 319 401 [8] for general policy requirements common to all classes of TSP

services.

The present document however provides in annex C, a check list of the policy requirements specific to TSP issuing

certificates (as expressed in the present document) including the generic requirements which are independent of the type

of service (as expressed in ETSI EN 319 401 [8]).

The present document includes provisions consistent with the requirements from the CA/Browser Forum in EVCG [4]

and BRG [5].
