Ruling Part 1 (current ABC Case)
The Security Policy does require ABCs for the following functions within CAcert
Access Engineer Systems Administrator Support Engineer Software Assessor
Defined in the SP22.214.171.124. linked to SP 1.1.1
- The Arbitrator role is not covered by this list.
- The realm-specific ABC requirements for Arbitrators are not defined. I am not aware of any requirements of becoming an Arbitrator.
The interview did happened at Fosdem 2014, Bruessels 2014-02-02 (A, R, Minutes Taker, Audit, Observer) The review of the Interview at 2014-03-04 Participants (A, CM, R)
- During the interview, no potential CoI was discovered.
- Up to the date of the ABC Interview, the respondent do good work in the Arbitration Team
- The Respondent know and work with the SP in several Arbitration Cases
- Since not all ABC requirements have been met, I hereby can not grand the Respondent a passed ABC.
Ruling Part 2 (General on ABC)
Conducting an ABC as Arbitrator, I discover that the ABC process and the ABC question provided does not reflect CAcert's actual goal to protect, what is: Initially Proof a persons integrity in regards to control by or interrelations with security agencies or other organisations with goals opposing CAcert's principles.
The questionnaire is kept confidential, therefore, I can not disclose too many details in regard to the questions contained. Around half of all questions do have little or non relevances to this goal. These questions handle the general knowledge of the applicant in regards to security agencies and personal work experiences.
Reviewing the ABC questionnaire I come to the conclusion that it should be overhauled to reflect definite goal before any other ABC is conducted. The overhaul ABC questionnaire and process must be reviewed by the Arbitrator of this case.
