RFC4010, "Use of the SEED Encryption Algorithm in Cryptographic Message Syntax (CMS)", February 2005

Source of RFC: smime (sec)

Errata ID: 3865

Status: Verified
Type: Technical

Section Appendix A. says:

     SeedEncryptionAlgorithmInCMS
         { iso(1) member-body(2) us(840) rsadsi(113549) pkcs(1)
           pkcs9(9) smime(16) modules(0) id-mod-cms-seed(24) }

It should say:

     SeedEncryptionAlgorithmInCMS
         { iso(1) member-body(2) us(840) rsadsi(113549) pkcs(1)
           pkcs9(9) smime(16) modules(0) id-mod-cms-seed(25) }

Notes:

The value assigned for id-mod-cms-seed in 25, not 24. This error will not impact interoperability, but it could impact developers using some ASN.1 tools.
