Source of RFC: tls (sec)

Type: Technical

Section 7.2 says:

   The Draft Standard for HTTP/1.1 [1] specifies that these tokens obey
   the production for 'product':

      product         = token ["/" product-version]
      product-version = token

[...]

   This specification defines the protocol token "TLS/1.0" as the
   identifier for the protocol specified by The TLS Protocol [6].

It should say:

   The Draft Standard for HTTP/1.1 [1] specifies that these tokens obey
   the production for 'product':

      product         = token ["/" product-version]
      product-version = token

[...]

   This specification defines the product token "TLS" as the
   identifier for the protocol specified by The TLS Protocol [6].
   When a specific version of TLS is desired, it is indicated by
   appending a slash ("/") and the TLS version number as the
   product-version (e.g., "TLS/1.0").

Notes:

This erratum clarifies that "TLS" is the product token and any TLS version number (currently DIGIT "." DIGIT) is the product-version token. This has already been corrected in the Upgrade Token Registry.
