The following errata report has been held for document update 
for RFC6402, "Certificate Management over CMS (CMC) Updates". 

--------------------------------------
You may review the report below and at:
https://www.rfc-editor.org/errata/eid3943

--------------------------------------
Status: Held for Document Update
Type: Technical

Reported by: Jim Schaad <ietf@augustcellars.com>;
Date Reported: 2014-04-02
Held by: Benjamin Kaduk (IESG)

Section: 2.8,

Original Text
-------------
      ChangeSubjectName ::= SEQUENCE {
          subject             Name OPTIONAL,
          subjectAlt          SubjectAltName OPTIONAL
      }
      (WITH COMPONENTS {..., subject PRESENT} |
            COMPONENTS {..., subjectAlt PRESENT} )

Corrected Text
--------------
      ChangeSubjectName ::= SEQUENCE {
          subject             Name OPTIONAL,
          subjectAlt          [1] SubjectAltName OPTIONAL
      }
      (WITH COMPONENTS {..., subject PRESENT} |
            COMPONENTS {..., subjectAlt PRESENT} )

Notes
-----
Both Name and SubjectAltName use the same tag (SEQUENCE) so it is not possible to distinguish between the two fields without having a tag on one of them.  This fix adds an (arbitrarily chosen) tag so that it is possible to differentiate the two fields.
