Section 14 says:
[GCM] McGrew, D. and J. Viega, "The Galois/Counter Mode of Operation (GCM)", Submission to NIST. http:// csrc.nist.gov/CryptoToolkit/modes/proposedmodes/gcm/ gcm-spec.pdf, January 2004.
It should say:
[GCM] Dworkin, M. "Recommendation for Block Cipher Modes of Operation: Galois/Counter Mode (GCM) and GMAC", NIST Special Publication 800-38D, November 2007.
The previous URL is dead. According to David McGrew, SP 800-38D is an acceptable substitute for the original paper. Note that this is a normative reference for good reason: there are many details in the referred-to document that are needed to implement RFC 4106.
