RFC 6277, "Online Certificate Status Protocol Algorithm Agility", June 2011

Note: This RFC has been obsoleted by RFC 6960

Section Appendix A.1 says:

   PreferredSignatureAlgorithm ::= SEQUENCE {
    sigIdentifier       AlgorithmIdentifier{SIGNATURE-ALGORITHM, {...}},
    pubKeyAlgIdentifier SMIMECapability{PUBLIC-KEY, {...}} OPTIONAL  }

It should say:

   PreferredSignatureAlgorithm ::= SEQUENCE {
    sigIdentifier       AlgorithmIdentifier{SIGNATURE-ALGORITHM, {...}},
    pubKeyAlgIdentifier AlgorithmIdentifier{PUBLIC-KEY, {...}} OPTIONAL}

Notes:

The original ASN.1 definition does not compile. The correction uses a syntax that is aligned with RFC 6960, which obsoletes RFC 6277.
