Section 2 says:

     IDEA-CBC OBJECT IDENTIFIER
       ::= { iso(1) identified-organization(3)
           usdod(6) oid(1) private(4) enterprises(1)
           ascom(188) systec(7) security(1) algorithms(1) 2 }

It should say:

     id-IDEA-CBC OBJECT IDENTIFIER
       ::= { iso(1) identified-organization(3)
           usdod(6) oid(1) private(4) enterprises(1)
           ascom(188) systec(7) security(1) algorithms(1) 2 }

Notes:

ASN.1 requires that such an identifier begin with a lower case letter. The prefix of "id-" is a common approach to meeting this requirement for an OBJECT IDENTIFIER.
