RFC 5639, "Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) Brainpool Standard Curves and Curve Generation", March 2010

Source of RFC: INDEPENDENT

Errata ID: 2083
Status: Verified
Type: Editorial

Section 1.1,1st para says:

   This RFC specifies elliptic curve domain parameters over prime fields
   GF(p) with p having a length of 160, 192, 224, 256, 320, 384, and 512
   bits.  These parameters were generated in a pseudo-random, yet
   completely systematic and reproducible, way and have been verified to
   resist current cryptanalytic approaches.  The parameters are
   compliant with ANSI X9.62 [ANSI1] and ANSI X9.63 [ANSI2], ISO/IEC
   14888 [ISO1] and ISO/IEC 15946 [ISO2], ETSI TS 102 176-1 [ETSI], as
|  well as with FIPS-186-2 [FIPS], and the Efficient Cryptography Group
   (SECG) specifications ([SEC1] and [SEC2]).


It should say:

   GF(p) with p having a length of 160, 192, 224, 256, 320, 384, and 512

   Cryptography Group (SECG) specifications ([SEC1] and [SEC2]).


Notes:

Rationale: incomplete expansion of acronym.

In Section 7.2, two of the references quoted here should perhaps
better point to the current versions of the documents:
