- sec please clarify if the challenge request 300ms limit is per neighbor or per sending node ( says per neighbor for challenge reply; I suspect it’s the same?)

- sec 7. “...this sort of resource attacks less effective...” s/attacks/attack”

Thank you for addressing my Discuss (and Comment) points!

One further note on the added text: I think that there is only mixed consensus
that PBKDF2 remains an algorithm that effectively hampers dictionary attacks,
since it's parallelizable and not memory-hard, but I don't object to listing it here.

Thanks for addressing my discuss and sorry for my late reaction (this somehow slipped through given the on-going discussion on draft-ietf-babel-rfc6126bis)!

OLD COMMENT (for the record):

The shepherd write-up says: "This document updates the rfc6126bis draft as noted on the title page
and in the Abstract." However, that seems not to be the case...?

This brings me to a separate question I would like to ask: Why is this an extension in a separate document and not an (optional) part of rfc6126bis?

Please mention RFC2104 in section 2 when HMAC is mentioned for the first time.

Thank you for the work put into this document. Using HMAC is usually simple but this document builds a lot of negotiation around HMAC.




I am a little puzzled by why HMAC keys/mechanisms are not identified to facilitate the key rollover. The used mechanism appears a little heavy on the required computing effort to compute several HMAC.

-- Section 1 --

The text about attacks on the Babel routing protocol should be better placed in the security considerations of RFC7216bis.

== NITS ==

The DTLS document use the writing <"babel" port> while here it is <Babel port>.
