RFC 8017, "PKCS #1: RSA Cryptography Specifications Version 2.2", November 2016

Source of RFC: IETF - NON WORKING GROUP

Errata ID: 5154
Status: Verified
Type: Technical

Reported By: Joost Rijneveld
Date Reported: 2017-10-12
Verifier Name: Kathleen Moriarty

Section A.2.4 says:

SHA-256          sha224WithRSAEncryption     ::= {pkcs-1 14}

It should say:

SHA-224          sha224WithRSAEncryption     ::= {pkcs-1 14}

Notes:

Good catch. Confirmed.

Background: The addition of SHA224 support to PKCS #1 required a few minor technical updates in PKCS #1 v2.2 compared to v2.1, and to the corresponding RFC8017 compared to RFC3447. PKCS #1 v2.2 got the correct update, but RFC8017 didn't -- presumably a copy-and-paste error. My oversight in reviewing the edits. Thanks, Joost, for pointing it out.
