RFC 6120, "Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP): Core", March 2011

Source of RFC: xmpp (rai)

Errata ID: 3486
Status: Held for Document Update
Type: Editorial

Reported By: Marco Cirillo
Date Reported: 2013-02-18

Section 5.4.1 says:

The receiving entity then MUST send stream features to the initiating
entity.  If the receiving entity supports TLS, the stream features
MUST include an advertisement for support of STARTTLS negotiation,
i.e., a <starttls/> element qualified by the
'urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:xmpp-tls' namespace.

It should say:

The receiving entity then MUST send stream features to the initiating 
entity.  If the receiving entity offers TLS capability, the stream 
features MUST include an advertisement for support of STARTTLS 
negotiation, i.e., a <starttls/> element qualified by the
'urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:xmpp-tls' namespace.

Notes:

Current text mixes up actual support of STARTTLS/TLS (which is mandated by section 5.2) with deployment/availableness of the said.
