Errata ID: 2600
Status: Verified
Type: Technical

Section 3.2.2 says:

digest-uri       = "uri" "=" digest-uri-value
digest-uri-value = request-uri   ; As specified by HTTP/1.1

It should say:

digest-uri       = "uri" "=" <"> digest-uri-value <">
digest-uri-value = request-uri   ; As specified by HTTP/1.1

Notes:

This is an error here that the digest-uri-value is not enclosed in quotation marks;
see the correct example in Section 3.5:

Authorization: Digest username="Mufasa",
realm="testrealm@host.com",
nonce="dcd98b7102dd2f0e8b11d0f600bfb0c093",
uri="/dir/index.html",
