This document presents an alternate method to do the anti-replay
checks and updates for IP Authentication Header (AH) and
Encapsulating Security Protocol (ESP).  The method defined
in this document obviates the need for bit shifting and it reduces
the number of times an anti-replay window is adjusted.  This document
is not an Internet Standards Track specification; it is
