Re: key-ed MD5 again (and before any final call)

First, I will reply to your inane subject line:

I issued a last call on this topic some weeks ago.  The IPng WG has now
issued a last call, but the discussion is taking place on this list.
Copy of the announcement appended.

Second, as to your obtuse inability to read the drafts:

> From: hugo@watson.ibm.com
> Ran's draft (draft-ietf-ipsec-auth-00.txt)
> requires MD5(key,text,key) but also requires compliance with:
>    [MS95]  Perry Metzger & Bill Simpson, "IP Authentication with Keyed MD5",
>            Work in Progress, 21 March 1995.
> which I did not see.
> However, in the document by these authors titled
> "draft-ietf-ipsec-ah-md5-02.txt" it says:
It's surprising that you did not see this draft, since it was announced
to this list _before_ Ran's drafts.

Obviously, you have had some difficulty with your transfer of the text,
since my transfer just now from ds.internic.net yielded:

                   IP Authentication using Keyed MD5
                     draft-ietf-ipsec-ah-md5-02.txt                       |

This is amazingly close to the reference.  The RFC Editor will touch up
the references section when RFCs are published.
