About the CA Security Council

The CA Security Council (CASC) is comprised of leading global Certificate Authorities that are committed to the exploration and promotion of best practices that advance trusted SSL deployment and CA operations as well as the security of the internet in general. While not a standards-setting organization, the CASC works collaboratively to improve understanding of critical policies and their potential impact on the internet infrastructure.

Membership in the CASC is available to publicly trusted SSL certificate authorities that meet the CASC’s reputation, operation, and security requirements. At a minimum, each member is required to abide by industry standards, such as the CA/Browser Forum’s Baseline Requirements and Network Security Guidelines, and undergo an extensive annual audit.
