Section A.2. says:

     mkey = [00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00]

It should say:

     key  = [00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00]

Notes:

The letter combination "mkey" for the key is only used in section "A.2. Testing with IV Setup" and nowhere else. In sections A.1, B.1 and B.2 instead consistently "key" is used. So I assume that the additional "m" is a typo. To retain formatting, an additional space is added after "key" as in sections A.1, B.1 and B.2.
