Major issues:

Minor issues:

Nits/editorial comments:

Under section 1.4, BPA is referenced in bullet 1 and 2 but is first defined in bullet 4.  Suggest defining that in bullet 1.

On page 10:

* "never used to sign the cipher- text provided" has an extra space between cipher- and text. 

* "The BCB is decrypted by security- aware nodes in the" has an extra space between security- and aware.
