Section Appendix C says:

   pkcs-12PbeParams ::= SEQUENCE {
       salt        OCTET STRING,
       iterations  INTEGER
   }

It should say:

   Pkcs-12PbeParams ::= SEQUENCE {
       salt        OCTET STRING,
       iterations  INTEGER
   }

Notes:

ASN.1 types must begin with a capital letter.

This might have been caught earlier if the parameters structure were included in the ASN.1 module, which is part of Appendix D.
