Section 4.5 says:

Still on page 10, Section 4.5 has two instances of a missing article.

(4a)
The 1st paragraph of Section 4.5 says:

   It may be required that the CA (not just the RA) verifies SII before
|  issuing a certificate.  To meet this requirement, RA SHOULD encrypt
   the SIItype, SII, and SIM and send the result to the CA by a secure
   channel.  The user SHOULD also encrypt the same values and send the
   result to the CA in his or her certificate request message.  Then the
   CA compares these two results for verifying the user's SII.

It should say:

   It may be required that the CA (not just the RA) verifies SII before

   encrypt the SIItype, SII, and SIM and send the result to the CA by a

   send the result to the CA in his or her certificate request message.
   Then the CA compares these two results for verifying the user's SII.

(4b)
The 2nd paragraph of Section 4.5 says:

|  Where the results from RA and the user are the EPEPSI.

It should say:

|  Where the results from the RA and the user are the EPEPSI.

It should say:

See above.
