RFC 2631, "Diffie-Hellman Key Agreement Method", June 1999

Source of RFC: smime (sec)

Errata ID: 6302
Status: Reported

Publication Format(s) : TEXT

Section says:

3. Set N’= L/1024

It should say:

3. Set N = L/1024


The definition of N' is not used in the document. On line 19 of the algorithm, we have "If counter < (4096 * N) then go to 8.". Hence, either the definition on line 3 has to be N instead of N', or it should be N' instead of N on line 19.
