RFC 3281, "An Internet Attribute Certificate Profile for Authorization", April 2002

Section 4.4.6 says:

   Clearance ::= SEQUENCE {
           policyId            [0] OBJECT IDENTIFIER,
           classList           [1] ClassList DEFAULT {unclassified},
           securityCategories  [2] SET OF SecurityCategory OPTIONAL
   }

It should say:

   Clearance ::= SEQUENCE {
           policyId            OBJECT IDENTIFIER,
           classList           ClassList DEFAULT {unclassified},
           securityCategories  SET OF SecurityCategory OPTIONAL
   }

Notes:

The differences in tagging arose due to an unnoticed technical corrigendum (TC-2) being applied to the X.501 document during preparation of RFC 3281. The X.501 format is the correct form and will be included in a future update of RFC 3281. Implementers SHOULD modify their decoding functions to accept either format and, even if claiming RFC 3281 conformance, SHOULD output the (correct) X.501 format pending the issuing of a corrected RFC at which point the incorrect RFC 3281 format will no longer be specified.
