The following errata report has been submitted for RFC2631,
"Diffie-Hellman Key Agreement Method".

You may review the report below and at:

Type: Technical
Reported by: Abdullah Talayhan <abdullahttj@gmail.com>


Original Text
3. Set N’= L/1024

Corrected Text
3. Set N = L/1024

The definition of N' is not used in the document. On line 19 of the algorithm, we have "If counter < (4096 * N) then go to 8.". Hence, either the definition on line 3 has to be N instead of N', or it should be N' instead of N on line 19.

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.
