The following errata report has been submitted for RFC8446,
"The Transport Layer Security (TLS) Protocol Version 1.3".

--------------------------------------
You may review the report below and at:
https://www.rfc-editor.org/errata/eid6204

--------------------------------------
Type: Editorial
Reported by: Chris Wood <caw@heapingbits.net>

Section: E.1

Original Text
-------------
Implementations MUST NOT combine external PSKs with certificate-based authentication of either the client or the server unless negotiated by some extension.

Corrected Text
--------------
Implementations MUST NOT combine external PSKs with certificate-based authentication of either client or the server. Future specifications MAY provide an extension to permit this. 

Notes
-----
The existing text can be misread as permitting this combination upon negotiation of the "post_handshake_auth" extension, which would be incorrect. [1] describes an attack that can occur based on this misinterpretation. The proposed text aims to make clear that a *new* extension is required for this combination.
