RFC 5116, "An Interface and Algorithms for Authenticated Encryption", January 2008

Source of RFC: IETF - NON WORKING GROUP
Area Assignment: sec

Errata ID: 4268
Status: Verified
Type: Editorial

Section 3.1 says:

As an example, the nonce 100 could be stored, after which the nonces
1 through 99 could be used for encryption.  The nonce value 200 could
be stored at the same time that nonces 1 through 99 are being used,
and so on.

It should say:

As an example, the nonce 100 could be stored, after which the nonces
1 through 99 could be used for encryption.  Then, nonces 101 to 199
could be used after the nonce 200 was saved.

Notes:

This might be confusing in its original form, maybe even suggesting an interpretation where nonces are reused.
