Errata ID: 4507
Status: Reported
Type: Editorial

Reported By: Benjamin Kaduk
Date Reported: 2015-10-19

Section 7.4.1.2 says:

After sending the ClientHello message, the client waits for a
ServerHello message.  Any handshake message returned by the server,
except for a HelloRequest, is treated as a fatal error.

It should say:

After sending the ClientHello message, the client waits for a
ServerHello message.  Any other handshake message returned by the
server, except for a HelloRequest, is treated as a fatal error.

Notes:

A ServerHello received after a ClientHello should not be treated as a fatal error.
