RFC 6655, "AES-CCM Cipher Suites for Transport Layer Security (TLS)", July 2012

Source of RFC: IETF - NON WORKING GROUP
Area Assignment: sec

Errata ID: 3987
Status: Reported
Type: Editorial
Publication Format(s) : TEXT

Reported By: Manuel Pégourié-Gonnard

Section 4 says:

             CipherSuite TLS_PSK_DHE_WITH_AES_128_CCM_8 = {0xC0,0xAA}
             CipherSuite TLS_PSK_DHE_WITH_AES_256_CCM_8 = {0xC0,0xAB}

It should say:

             CipherSuite TLS_DHE_PSK_WITH_AES_128_CCM_8 = {0xC0,0xAA}
             CipherSuite TLS_DHE_PSK_WITH_AES_256_CCM_8 = {0xC0,0xAB}

Notes:

Since these suites use the DHE_PSK key exchange, their name should start with TLS_DHE_PSK, not TLS_PSK_DHE, which is inconsistent with the general naming scheme of ciphersuites, and with the names of their CCM (as opposed to CCM_8) counterparts.
