The following errata report has been submitted for RFC4492,
"Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) Cipher Suites for Transport Layer Security (TLS)".

--------------------------------------
You may review the report below and at:
http://www.rfc-editor.org/errata_search.php?rfc=4492&eid=3652

--------------------------------------
Type: Editorial
Reported by: Peter Dettman <peter.dettman@bouncycastle.org>

Section: 5.4

Original Text
-------------
ECBasisType basis;
select (basis) {
    case ec_trinomial:
        opaque  k <1..2^8-1>;
    case ec_pentanomial:
        opaque  k1 <1..2^8-1>;
        opaque  k2 <1..2^8-1>;
        opaque  k3 <1..2^8-1>;
};


Corrected Text
--------------
ECBasisType basis;
select (basis) {
    case ec_basis_trinomial:
        opaque  k <1..2^8-1>;
    case ec_basis_pentanomial:
        opaque  k1 <1..2^8-1>;
        opaque  k2 <1..2^8-1>;
        opaque  k3 <1..2^8-1>;
};


Notes
-----
ECBasisType is earlier introduced as:
    enum { ec_basis_trinomial, ec_basis_pentanomial } ECBasisType;

The cases of the select statement should spell the enum elements correctly.

Instructions:
-------------
This errata 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 (IESG)
