Hi Steve,

The note below was distributed earlier on the ITU-T SG17
sub-group Q11/17 list by the group's rapporteur.  It might
be useful to gauge industry reaction in IETF and CA/B
Forum venues.

Note that although the document appears on an ITU-T
template, it has not been submitted.   In addition, although
the source is indicated as "Denmark," it is not apparent
that the source is any other than than the rapporteur
himself, who is identified as the contact.  Lastly, although
the note asserts that "IEC TC57 WG15 (smart grid
security) has requested the inclusion of whitelist
support in X.509," there is no apparent liaison to
this effect.

IEC TC57 WG15 (smart grid security) has requested the inclusion of 
whitelist support in X.509. A preliminary proposal for such a feature 
may be found as 

The feature may in some way be combined with the trust broker concept, 
which probably will involve a number of changes.

As it is quite important that we have workable solution, any comment is 
welcome. I hope you will find the time to review the proposal before it 
is submitted to ITU-T.

Kind regards,
