Re: [ietf-dkim] [Editorial Errata Reported] RFC6376 (5260)

2018-02-08 11:31:50
While possibly a nice addition to the specification, including this ABNF rule does not correct an error in RFC 6376.

As for header-field name case sensitivity, that is the purview of RFC 5322, not RFC 6376.

(FWIW, it does appear that there is an error in RFC 5322, since it does not enforce case insensitity in the syntax, although it specifies -- and intends -- it in the prose.)


The following errata report has been submitted for RFC6376,
"DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) Signatures".

You may review the report below and at:

Type: Editorial
Reported by: Ale <vesely(_at_)tana(_dot_)it>

Section: 3.5

Original Text

Corrected Text
DKIM-Signature = "DKIM-Signature:" tag-list

A formal definition is needed to make it explicit that this header field name 
is case insensitive, like all the other header field names.

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.
