Section 3.6.1 says:

   k= Key type (plain-text; OPTIONAL, default is "rsa").  Signers and
      Verifiers MUST support the "rsa" key type.  The "rsa" key type
      indicates that an ASN.1 DER-encoded [ITU-X660-1997] RSAPublicKey
      (see [RFC3447], Sections 3.1 and A.1.1) is being used in the "p="
      tag.  (Note: the "p=" tag further encodes the value using the
      base64 algorithm.)  Unrecognized key types MUST be ignored.

and in Section 9.1:

              "Information Technology - ASN.1 encoding rules:
              Specification of Basic Encoding Rules (BER), Canonical
              Encoding Rules (CER) and Distinguished Encoding Rules
              (DER)", 1997.

It should say:

Both instances of "[ITU-X660-1997]" should be "[ITU-X690-1997]"


This is just a typo: "660" should be "690". The text of the reference is correct, but the document number is wrong.
