What is the issue?

Problem Statement

The SMKI PMA and SSC established a secure process for DCC Users who have completed the User Entry Process Tests (UEPT) to obtain SMKI Device Certificates from the DCC via a DCC Gateway connection and an Agreed Interpretation of this process has been published on the SEC website. Unfortunately, this is not clearly reflected in the SEC and could cause ambiguity for DCC Users when requesting SMKI Device Certificates.

The full Draft Proposal can be found here.

Latest Progress

We have yet to receive any comments on this proposal. Any comments we do receive will be published on this page.

What is the solution?

After consideration of industry comments and discussions with the DCC, the Proposer (the SMKI PMA) believes that the most effective solution is to change the legal text in the SEC to reflect the Agreed Interpretation thereby ensuring there is clarity and consistency in the process of obtaining Device Certificates.
