The following errata report has been verified for RFC8422,
"Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) Cipher Suites for Transport Layer Security (TLS) Versions 1.2 and Earlier". 

--------------------------------------
You may review the report below and at:
http://www.rfc-editor.org/errata/eid5703

--------------------------------------
Status: Verified
Type: Technical

Reported by: Frank Theinen <Frank.Theinen@web.de>;
Date Reported: 2019-04-23
Verified by: Benjamin Kaduk (IESG)

Section: 5.10.

Original Text
-------------
All RSA signatures must be generated and verified according to
   Section 7.2 of [RFC8017].

Corrected Text
--------------
All RSA signatures must be generated and verified according to
   Section 8.2 of [RFC8017].

Notes
-----
Section 7.2 of RFC 8017 describes the RSAES-PKCS1-v1_5 encryption scheme. Section 8.2 of RFC 8017 describes the RSASSA-PKCS1-v1_5 signature scheme. The original text contradicts the natural expectation and is probably wrong. If it was intended, there should have been a thorough explanation (like in the well-known case of IKEv1 using the encryption scheme for signing).
