RFC 5084, "Using AES-CCM and AES-GCM Authenticated Encryption in the Cryptographic Message Syntax (CMS)", November 2007

Source of RFC: smime (sec)

Errata ID: 4727
Status: Held for Document Update
Type: Editorial
Publication Format(s) : TEXT

Section 3.2 says:

   The AES-GCM authenticated encryption algorithm is described in [GCM].
   A brief summary of the properties of AES-CCM is provided in Section
   1.5.

It should say:

   The AES-GCM authenticated encryption algorithm is described in [GCM].
   A brief summary of the properties of AES-GCM is provided in Section
   1.5.

Notes:

Section 3.2 discusses AES-GCM, and links to Section 1.5 (titled "AES-GCM"), so the text "AES-CCM" in the second sentence should be "AES-GCM".
