Archived TD0168: NIT Technical Decision for Mandatory requirement for CSR generation
The Network Interpretations Team (NIT) has issued a technical decision regarding mandatory requirement for Certificate Signing Request (CSR) generation.
This requirement was discussed and mandated by the iTC, which had vendor participation. No objections to making this capability mandatory were raised at that time, so the TRRT does not feel that it is appropriate that they make this requirement objective. Vendors that want to see this change made should work through the iTC; the requirement for now will remain mandatory.
For further information, please see the NIT interpretation at: https://www.niap-ccevs.org/Documents_and_Guidance/ccevs/NITDecisionRfI07.pdf.
