The following errata report has been submitted for RFC8392,
"CBOR Web Token (CWT)".

--------------------------------------
You may review the report below and at:
http://www.rfc-editor.org/errata/eid5710

--------------------------------------
Type: Technical
Reported by: Felipe Gasper <felipe@felipegasper.com>

Section: 1.1

Original Text
-------------
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.

Corrected Text
--------------
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.

Instructions:
-------------
This erratum is currently posted as "Reported". If necessary, please
use "Reply All" to discuss whether it should be verified or
rejected. When a decision is reached, the verifying party  
can log in to change the status and edit the report, if necessary.
