RFC 7616, "HTTP Digest Access Authentication", September 2015

Source of RFC: httpauth (sec)

Errata ID: 4495
Status: Verified
Type: Editorial

Section 3.9.1. says:

   Both client and
   server know that the username for this document is "Mufasa" and the
   password is "Circle of Life" (with one space between each of the
   three words).

It should say:

   Both client and
   server know that the username for this document is "Mufasa" and the 
   password is "Circle of Life" (with one space between 
   each of the three words and non-capital o in word of).

Notes:

In RFC 2617, the password was "Circle Of Life" with capital O in the word "Of". Also, RFC 7616 section 3.4.5 mentions the password "Circle Of Life" with capital O in the word "Of". It can be difficult to notice a non-capital o from an example password as it is elsewhere capital O.
