Monitor description: Inconsistency between intro and section 5.4

Reported by: eranm@… Owned by: melinda.shore@…
Priority: major Milestone: review
Component: rfc6962-bis Version:
Severity: - Keywords:
Cc: kent@…


The introduction vaguely describes what monitors are doing (observing that a log is consistent, detection of mis-issued certificates on behalf of site owners). It should be more firm about the monitor's roles and it should be reflected more in-depth in section 5.4.
Section 5.4 should mandate checking for mis-issued certificates by monitors (rather than an option - it's now a MAY).

Eran, I presume you're talking about section 5.4 of 6962-bis. So is "client-behavior" the right component for this ticket?

ISTM unnecessary to require _every_ monitor to "check for mis-issued certificates". Surely monitors that only check STHs are useful?

I believe this is now addressed more in-depth by the architecture document, so I propose leaving the current text in-place (which was improved when Rob Stradling re-hauled the clients section).
