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

You may review the report below and at:

Status: Verified
Type: Technical

Reported by: Russ Housley <housley@vigilsec.com>
Date Reported: 2019-11-02
Verified by: Benjamin Kaduk (IESG)

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.
