The following errata report has been submitted for RFC6680,
"Generic Security Service Application Programming Interface (GSS-API) Naming Extensions".

--------------------------------------
You may review the report below and at:
http://www.rfc-editor.org/errata_search.php?rfc=6680&eid=4337

--------------------------------------
Type: Technical
Reported by: Benjamin Kaduk <kaduk@mit.edu>

Section: 7.5

Original Text
-------------
   This function outputs the value(s) associated with a given GSS name
   object for a given name attribute.

Corrected Text
--------------
   This function outputs the value(s) associated with a given GSS name
   object for a given name attribute.  It is permitted to block pending
   network interactions when the attr input is not an attribute which
   would be included in the attrs output of a call to GSS_Inquire_name()
   on the same name input.


Notes
-----
RFC 6680 makes no mention of blocking or not blocking on network interaction, though RFC 2743 does.  This seems like the most reasonable interpretation of what is currently in RFC 6680.  Calls which are not explicitly permitted to block are assumed to be not permitted to block.

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 (IESG)
can log in to change the status and edit the report, if necessary.
