(6) missing comma, causing possible mis-interpretation The last sentence of Section 3, at the bottom of page 9, says: [...]. The HMAC SHALL be computed over the entire message, excluding the MAC field using auth_key; see also section 4.2.
It should say:
It should say: [...]. The HMAC SHALL be | computed over the entire message, excluding the MAC field, using auth_key; see also section 4.2. or perhaps even better and clearer: [...]. The HMAC SHALL be | computed (using auth_key) over the entire message excluding the MAC | field; see also section 4.2.
