RFC 5912, "New ASN.1 Modules for the Public Key Infrastructure Using X.509 (PKIX)", June 2010

Source of RFC: pkix (sec)

Errata ID: 3623
Status: Rejected
Type: Technical
Publication Format(s) : TEXT

Reported By: Carl Wallace
Date Reported: 2013-05-16

Section 14 says:

   -- CRL number extension OID and syntax
   ext-CRLNumber EXTENSION ::= {SYNTAX
       INTEGER (0..MAX) IDENTIFIED BY id-ce-cRLNumber }
   id-ce-cRLNumber OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::= { id-ce 20 }

   CRLNumber ::= INTEGER (0..MAX)

It should say:

   -- CRL number extension OID and syntax
   CRLNumber ::= INTEGER 

   ext-CRLNumber EXTENSION ::= {SYNTAX
       CRLNumber IDENTIFIED BY id-ce-cRLNumber }
   id-ce-cRLNumber OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::= { id-ce 20 }

Notes:

The CRLNumber extension was not defined to use the CRLNumber type. The CRLNumber type uses MAX to limit the maximum value. This limitation is inconsistent with section 5.2.3 and Appendix B, which allow CRLNumber values up to 20 octets in length.
