Source of RFC: opsawg (ops)

Errata ID: 6300
Status: Reported
Type: Technical
Publication Format(s) : TEXT

Reported By: Stéphane Bortzmeyer
Date Reported: 2020-10-05

Section A.3.2 says:

   $ openssl smime -decrypt -in SN19842256.enc -inform pkcs7\
      -out config.cfg -inkey key.pem

It should say:

   $ openssl smime -decrypt -in SN19842256.enc -inform PEM\
      -out config.cfg -inkey key.pem


Otherwise, OpenSSL fails with:

smime: Invalid format "pkcs7" for -inform
smime: Use -help for summary.
