The following errata report has been submitted for RFC6277,
"Online Certificate Status Protocol Algorithm Agility".

You may review the report below and at:

Type: Technical
Reported by: Russ Housley <housley@vigilsec.com>

Section: Appendix A.1

Original Text
   PreferredSignatureAlgorithm ::= SEQUENCE {
    sigIdentifier       AlgorithmIdentifier{SIGNATURE-ALGORITHM, {...}},
    pubKeyAlgIdentifier SMIMECapability{PUBLIC-KEY, {...}} OPTIONAL  }

Corrected Text
   PreferredSignatureAlgorithm ::= SEQUENCE {
    sigIdentifier       AlgorithmIdentifier{SIGNATURE-ALGORITHM, {...}},
    pubKeyAlgIdentifier AlgorithmIdentifier{PUBLIC-KEY, {...}} OPTIONAL}

The original ASN.1 definition does not compile.  The correction uses a syntax that is aligned with RFC 6960, which obsoletes RFC 6277.

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.
