Description

3.1 Request Line -- There isn't a requirement for recipients of messages with whitespace between the start-line and the first header field. Should there be?

Change History (5)

comment:1 Changed 6 years ago by fielding@…

From [2028]:

Expand on message parsing robustness regarding whitespace. Clarify that whitespace-delimited parsing by recipients is allowed.

Add requirement on recipients of whitespace between start-line and first header field to be consistent with implementations and safe from the header spoofing issues.

Reduce ABNF conformance by recipients to a SHOULD.

Addresses #411, #412, and #414.
