Subject: [smime] [Technical Errata Reported] RFC5652 (6250)

The following errata report has been submitted for RFC5652, "Cryptographic
Message Syntax (CMS)".

--------------------------------------
You may review the report below and at:
https://www.rfc-editor.org/errata/eid6250

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

Section: 9.2

Original Text
-------------
   If the authAttrs field is present, the content-type attribute (as
   described in Section 11.1) and the message-digest attribute (as
   described in Section 11.2) MUST be included, and the input to the MAC
   calculation process is the DER encoding of authAttrs.  A separate
   encoding of the authAttrs field is performed for message digest
   calculation.  The IMPLICIT [2] tag in the authAttrs field is not used
   for the DER encoding, rather an EXPLICIT SET OF tag is used.  That
   is, the DER encoding of the SET OF tag, rather than of the IMPLICIT
   [2] tag, is to be included in the message digest calculation along
   with the length and content octets of the authAttrs value.

Corrected Text
--------------

   with the length and content octets of the authAttrs value.

Notes
-----
The paragraph is talking about the input to a MAC calculation, not the input
to message digest calculation.

-------------
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
