RFC 7512, "The PKCS #11 URI Scheme", April 2015

Source of RFC: IETF - NON WORKING GROUP
Area Assignment: sec

Errata ID: 4813

Status: Reported
Type: Technical

Reported By: Sean Leonard

Section 2.4 says:

   o  If the value contains "|<absolute-command-path>", the
      implementation SHOULD read the PIN from the output of an
      application specified with absolute path "<absolute-command-
      path>".  Note that character "|" representing a pipe does not have
      to be percent-encoded in the query component of a PKCS #11 URI.

It should say:

(Eliminate)

Notes:

The "|" character is not a valid URI [RFC3986] character. Strings that include "|" are not URIs and therefore are not valid pkcs11: URIs.

The ABNF in Section 2.3 also needs to be updated to remove "|".

Section 2.3 Original:
pk11-query-res-avail = pk11-res-avail / "/" / "?" / "|"

Section 2.3 Corrected:
pk11-query-res-avail = pk11-res-avail / "/" / "?"
