Source of RFC: sip (rai)

Errata ID: 2170
Status: Held for Document Update
Type: Technical
Publication Format(s) : TEXT

Reported By: Peter Dawes

Section 4.2 says:

The second INVITE (4) and the ACK (8) contain a Security-Verify
   header field that mirrors the Security-Server header field received
   in the 421.

It should say:

The second INVITE (4) contains a Security-Verify
   header field that mirrors the Security-Server header field received
   in the 421.

Notes:

RFC 3329 Section 2.6, Table 1: Summary of Header Usage. indicates that Security-Client, Security-Server, Security-Verify are "Not applicable" to the SIP ACK request.

RFC 3261 says "Not applicable" means that the header field MUST NOT be present in a request. If one is placed in a request by mistake, it MUST be ignored by the UAS receiving the request."
