Discussion notes, key understandings, outstanding questions, observations, and, if appropriate to this discussion: action items, next steps:

Question: how do you know when you’re done testing for security vulnerabilities, given that new attacks are being developed all the time Good question. Some of the most important tests are negative tests. For example, one of the most important tests for a relying party is, ‘Are you checking signatures at all?’ We are trying to cover all the MUSTS I the spec

Are there periodic updates to the certification process? Yes – there are version identifiers that tie to version s of the certification test software version
