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

--------------------------------------
You may review the report below and at:
http://www.rfc-editor.org/errata_search.php?rfc=6749&eid=4206

--------------------------------------
Type: Technical
Reported by: Alexander Kempgen <alex@kempgen.de>

Section: 4.1

Original Text
-------------
   (E)  The authorization server authenticates the client, validates the
        authorization code, and ensures that the redirection URI
        received matches the URI used to redirect the client in
        step (C).  If valid, the authorization server responds back with
        an access token and, optionally, a refresh token.

Corrected Text
--------------
   (E)  The authorization server authenticates the client, validates the
        authorization code, and ensures that the redirection URI
        received matches the redirection URI provided by the client in
        step (A).  If valid, the authorization server responds back with
        an access token and, optionally, a refresh token.

Notes
-----
As written in section 4.1.3, the redirection URI in the access token request must match the redirection URI provided by the client in the authorization request (4.1.1). The URI used to redirect the user agent to the client in step (C) is actually different from this URI, as it contains the additional query parameters "code" and "state".

Affects the same sentence as Errata ID: 3500.

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.
