Systems Administrator

Defined in the SP9.1.4.2. linked to SP 1.1.1

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.
