This memo correctly describes the incremental update procedure for use with the standard Internet checksum. It is intended to replace the description of Incremental Update in RFC 1071. This is not a standard but rather, an implementation technique.

For the definition of Status, see RFC 2026.

For the definition of Stream, see RFC 8729.
