RFC 8392, "CBOR Web Token (CWT)", May 2018

Source of RFC: ace (sec)

Errata ID: 5710
Status: Reported
Type: Technical

Reported By: Felipe Gasper

Section 1.1 says:

In JSON, maps are called objects and only have one kind of map key: a
   string.  CBOR uses strings, negative integers, and unsigned integers
   as map keys.

It should say:

In JSON, maps are called objects and only have one kind of map key:
a string.  CBOR allows other data types, such as strings, negative
integers, and unsigned integers, as map keys.

Notes:

The text as it stands risks an interpretation that CBOR limits map keys to integers and strings; per discussion on the CBOR mailing list, this is not the case.
