RFC 4419, "Diffie-Hellman Group Exchange for the Secure Shell (SSH) Transport Layer Protocol", March 2006

Source of RFC: secsh (sec)

Errata ID: 5567
Status: Reported
Type: Editorial

Reported By: Tomoyuki Sahara
Date Reported: 2018-12-07

Section 3 says:

     byte    SSH_MSG_KEY_DH_GEX_REQUEST

It should say:

     byte    SSH_MSG_KEX_DH_GEX_REQUEST

Notes:

KEY should be KEX.

1. Section 5. defines "SSH_MSG_KEX_DH_GEX_REQUEST".
2. Other messages in RFC4419 have the same prefix "SSH_MSG_KEX_DH_GEX_".
3. RFC5656 defines two messages start with "SSH_MSG_KEX_".

RFC8270 refers to "SSH_MSG_KEY_DH_GEX_REQUEST" and it should be corrected too.
