RFC 4130, "MIME-Based Secure Peer-to-Peer Business Data Interchange Using HTTP, Applicability Statement 2 (AS2)", July 2005

Source of RFC: ediint (app)

Errata ID: 2974
Status: Rejected
Type: Technical
Publication Format(s) : TEXT

Section 7.4.3 says:

   digest-alg-id = "sha1" | "md5"

It should say:

   digest-alg-id = "sha-1" | "sha-224" | "sha-256" | "sha-384" | "sha-512" | "sha1" | "md5"
		; The "sha1" is a legacy spelling of the "sha-1" defined hash in the IANA Textual Names Registry
		; It should be maintained for backwards compatibility


The proper spelling is "sha-1" per http://www.iana.org/assignments/hash-function-text-names/hash-function-text. However, "sha1" should still be accepted to support backwards compatibility. The other hashes are newer ones since the RFC was published.
Because this erratum really requires publication of a replacement RFC, in accordance with the "IESG Processing of RFC Errata for the IETF Stream" <http://www.ietf.org/iesg/statement/errata-processing.html> the appropriate processing is to reject it.
