Section 4.8 & 4.9 says:

In 4.8,

From: aliceDss@examples.com
Subject: Example 4.8
Message-Id: <020906002550300.249@examples.com>

In 4.9,

From: aliceDss@examples.com
Subject: Example 4.9
Message-Id: <021031164540300.304@examples.com>

It should say:

In 4.8,

From: AliceDSS@example.com
Subject: Example 4.8
Message-Id: <020906002550300.249@example.com>

In 4.9,

From: AliceDSS@example.com
Subject: Example 4.9
Message-Id: <021031164540300.304@example.com>


"From" line of the RFC-822 message is aliceDss@examples.com, while the certificate’s SubjectAlternativeName contains Rfc822Name = AliceDSS@example.com

So the two emails are different in the host part:


The wrong email (aliceDss@examples.com) is given in both cleartext examples and encoded examples.

Additionally, the Message-Id should also be from example.com not from examples.com.
