RFC 5035, "Enhanced Security Services (ESS) Update: Adding CertID Algorithm Agility", August 2007

Source of RFC: smime (sec)

Errata ID: 1007
Status: Held for Document Update
Type: Technical

Section A says:

At the end of Appendix A, near the bottom of page 15, the last
two ASN.1 definitions are joined on one line.  Apart from a major
decrease in readability, this in fact might be wrong in ASN.1.

The RFC says:

   Hash ::= OCTET STRING  IssuerSerial ::= SEQUENCE {
        issuer                   GeneralNames,
        serialNumber             CertificateSerialNumber
   }

It should say:

   Hash ::= OCTET STRING

   IssuerSerial ::= SEQUENCE {
        issuer                   GeneralNames,
        serialNumber             CertificateSerialNumber
   }

(Note: I have indented the original/replacement RFC text by 3 columns
 to make it better distinguishable in this context.)

It should say:

See above.

Notes:
