The latest version of the guidelines is at:
 
http://www.cabforum.org/EV_Certificate_Guidelines.pdf
 
The actual profile requirements are in part D, sections 6 through 8.
 
Section 6 essentially states that particular OIDs must be used for the subject and issuer identifier DN arcs. These appear to be taken from PKIX.
 
Section 7 states where the policy OIDs should be placed.
 
Section 8 gives maximum lifespan requirements, interestingly this is a SHOULD not a MUST.
 
 
Additional technical details are in Appendices A and B.
 
Appendix A is motherhood/Apple pie statements on key lengths. Most important thing here is that the transition to 2048 bits is mandated by the end of 2010.
 
Appendix B is a profile on X.509v3 and PKIX (RFC 3280).
