The following errata report has been submitted for RFC6749,
"The OAuth 2.0 Authorization Framework".

--------------------------------------
Type: Technical
Reported by: Randip Kumar Malakar <randip.malakar@gmail.com>

Section: 2.1.

Original Text
-------------
   public
      Clients incapable of maintaining the confidentiality of their
      credentials (e.g., clients executing on the device used by the
      resource owner, such as an installed native application or a web
      browser-based application), and incapable of secure client
      authentication via any other means.

Corrected Text
--------------
   public
      Clients incapable of maintaining the confidentiality of their
      credentials (e.g., clients executing on the device used by the
      third-party (not resource owner but another end user), such as an
      installed native application or a web
      browser-based application), and incapable of secure client
      authentication via any other means.

Notes
-----
I think in case of public client type, it should state as "e.g. the clients executing on the device used by third-party and not the actual resource owner" as mentioned in the original RFC. I let the author or experts to review my remark. Thanks.
