RFC 5480, "Elliptic Curve Cryptography Subject Public Key Information", March 2009

Errata ID: 4170
Status: Reported
Type: Editorial

Reported By: Annie Yousar
Date Reported: 2014-11-11

Section 4 says:

   ---------+----------+------------+-----------
   256      | 512      | SHA-512    | secp521r1
   ---------+----------+------------+-----------

It should say:

   ---------+----------+------------+-----------
   256      | 512+     | SHA-512    | secp521r1
   ---------+----------+------------+-----------

Notes:

The first table in section 4 (p. 9) provides the right text. The corresponding line in the table on p. 10 is the wrong one. In fact the key size is exactly 521 and not only 512+. Therefore 512+ in both tables could also be replaced by 521.
