RFC 4106, "The Use of Galois/Counter Mode (GCM) in IPsec Encapsulating Security Payload (ESP)", June 2005

Section 14 says:

   [GCM]      McGrew, D. and J. Viega, "The Galois/Counter Mode of
              Operation (GCM)", Submission to NIST. http://
              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.
