RFC 5655, "Specification of the IP Flow Information Export (IPFIX) File Format", October 2009

Source of RFC: ipfix (ops)

Errata ID: 1991
Status: Held for Document Update
Type: Editorial
Publication Format(s) : TEXT

Section 12.2, pg.43 says:

...  first paragraph:

                                                 [...].  The channel
|  between the Exporting Process to Collecting Process using IPFIX is
   signed by the Exporting Process key and protected via TLS and DTLS,
   while the File is signed by the File Writer key and protected via
   CMS.  [...]

It should say:

                                                 [...].  The channel
|  from the Exporting Process to the Collecting Process using IPFIX is
   signed by the Exporting Process key and protected via TLS and DTLS,
   while the File is signed by the File Writer key and protected via
   CMS.  [...]

Notes:

Rationale:
"channel between xxx to yyy" does not make sense. Either
"channel _from_ xxx to yyy" or "channel between xxx _and_ yyy"
should be written.
The Corrected Text above suggests the first alternative (based
on the essential unidirectionality of the information flow) and
balances the use of articles.
