Section 7, pg. 14/15 says:

                                                                  Only
   after receiving message 6, the server SHOULD respond with an
<< page break >>
   authentication failure notification, i.e., a message conforming to
|  message 6 in Figure 10.  The purpose of this behaviour is to prevent
   an adversary from probing the EAP-IKEv2 peer identifier space.

It should say:

                                                                   Only
   after receiving message 6, the server SHOULD respond with an
   authentication failure notification, i.e., a message conforming to
|  message 7 in Figure 10.  The purpose of this behaviour is to prevent
   an adversary from probing the EAP-IKEv2 peer identifier space.

Notes:

Rationale: See Figure 10 in Appendix A (on page 30).

Note: The RFC contains Figure 1..6, 10, and 11, but no Figure 7..9 !
