This document describes an extension to the TCP Authentication
Option (TCP-AO) to support its use over connections that pass
through Network Address Translators and/or Network Address and 
Port Translators (NATs/NAPTs).  This extension changes the data 
used to compute traffic keys, but it does not alter TCP-AO's 
packet processing or key generation algorithms.
