Missing step in "Verifying an inclusion proof"

Reported by: robpercival@… Owned by: rob.stradling@…
Priority: minor Milestone: review
Component: rfc6962-bis Version:
Severity: - Keywords:

Description

In section 10.4.1, the described algorithm is missing a step. Immediately under '4. For each value "p" in the "inclusion_path" array:', it should say 'If "sn" is 0, stop the iteration and fail the proof verification.'. Otherwise, inclusion proofs containing more nodes than necessary (i.e. not "the shortest list of additional nodes") will pass verification.
