ElectorGroupId (ELGRPID): IEEE Std 1609.2.1™
The ElectorGroupId is an identifier specified in IEEE Std 1609.2.1 and used to identify a Certificate Trust List (CTL). A CTL records the list of root Certificate Authority (CA) certificates that are trusted by a SCMS Manager. These root CAs have agreed to follow and enforce the certificate policies and practices of that SCMS Manager. The SCMS Manager also appoints a group of Electors. Each Elector in the group provides a signature on the CTL contents, enabling other participants in the system to trust the CTL.
The CTL also contains information necessary for the perpetuation of future versions of the CTL: The Elector certificates to be used to sign the next CTL in the series, and the “quorum,” which is the minimum number of valid Elector signatures on the next CTL that must be known to any participant in the system for that participant to consider that CTL valid.
The ElectorGroupId is an identifier of the CTL series. It is required to be globally unique and so its allocation is managed by the IEEE RA.
The assignee of an ElectorGroupId is known as the SCMS Manager of that ElectorGroupId.
