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

Source of RFC: pkix (sec)

Errata ID: 4244

Status: Reported
Type: Technical

Reported By: Richard Nicholas
Date Reported: 2015-01-27

Section 14 says:

  at-x520StateOrProvinceName ATTRIBUTE ::=
      { TYPE DirectoryString {ub-state-name}
          IDENTIFIED BY id-at-stateOrProvinceName }
  X520StateOrProvinceName ::= DirectoryString {ub-state-name}

  at-x520OrganizationName ATTRIBUTE ::=
      { TYPE DirectoryString {ub-organization-name}
          IDENTIFIED BY id-at-organizationName }
  X520OrganizationName ::= DirectoryString {ub-organization-name}

  at-x520OrganizationalUnitName ATTRIBUTE ::=
      { TYPE DirectoryString  {ub-organizational-unit-name}
          IDENTIFIED BY id-at-organizationalUnitName }
  X520OrganizationalUnitName ::= DirectoryString
                                     {ub-organizational-unit-name}

It should say:

  at-x520StateOrProvinceName ATTRIBUTE ::=
      { TYPE X520StateOrProvinceName
          IDENTIFIED BY id-at-stateOrProvinceName }
  X520StateOrProvinceName ::= DirectoryString {ub-state-name}

  at-x520OrganizationName ATTRIBUTE ::=
      { TYPE X520OrganizationName IDENTIFIED BY id-at-organizationName }
  X520OrganizationName ::= DirectoryString {ub-organization-name}

  at-x520OrganizationalUnitName ATTRIBUTE ::=
      { TYPE X520OrganizationalUnitName
          IDENTIFIED BY id-at-organizationalUnitName }
  X520OrganizationalUnitName ::= DirectoryString
                                     {ub-organizational-unit-name}

Notes:

The definitions of the three ATTRIBUTE objects (at-x520StateOrProvinceName, at-x520OrganizationName, at-x520OrganizationalUnitName) should be changed to reference the existing type definitions. This change will eliminate the extra type definition in each of those objects as well as make those object definitions consistent with the definitions for the at-x520LocalityName and at-x520CommonName ATTRIBUTE objects.
