Section 9 says:

The SHA2 family 
consists of four variants -- SHA-224, SHA-256, SHA-384, and SHA-521 
-- named after their digest lengths.

It should say:

The SHA2 family 
consists of four variants -- SHA-224, SHA-256, SHA-384, and SHA-512 
-- named after their digest lengths.

Notes:

The SHA2 family has a SHA-512 variant, not SHA-521.
