RFC 4302, "IP Authentication Header", December 2005

Source of RFC: ipsec (sec)

Errata ID: 134

Status: Verified
Type: Technical

Reported By: Vishwas Manral
Date Reported: 2006-01-12

Section 3.3.4 says:

   NOTE: For IPv6 -- For bump-in-the-stack and bump-in-the-wire
   implementations, it will be necessary to examine all the extension
   headers to determine if there is a fragmentation header and hence
   that the packet needs reassembling prior to IPsec processing.

It should say:

   NOTE: For IPv6 -- For bump-in-the-stack and bump-in-the-wire
   implementations, it will be necessary to examine all the extension
   headers to determine if there is a fragmentation header, and either
   the More flag or the Fragment Offset is non-zero. If so that packet
   needs reassembling prior to IPsec processing.
