Section 6.7.2 says:
If the Auth Len field is not equal to the length of the password selected by the key ID, plus three, the packet MUST be discarded.
It should say:
If the Auth Len field is not match to the length of the password selected by the key ID, plus three, the packet MUST be discarded.
The value of the Auth Len field is the length of the password plus 3.
This erratum proposes changing “is not equal” to “is not match”. As far as I can tell would make the text less, not more, precise.
