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: Charlie Zhuo <charlie.zhuo@ericsson.com>

Section: 2.1.1

Original Text
h is any integer with 1 < h < p-1 such that h{(p-1)/q} mod p > 1
(g has order q mod p; i.e. g^q mod p = 1 if g!=1)

Corrected Text
h is any integer with 1 < h < p-1 such that h^{(p-1)/q} mod p > 1
(g has order q mod p; i.e. g^q mod p = 1 if g!=1)

the explanation of h misses exponentiation operation in formula.

This erratum is currently posted as "Reported". If necessary, please
