I have reviewed this document as part of the security directorate's ongoing
effort to review all IETF documents being processed by the IESG.  These
comments were written primarily for the benefit of the security area
directors.  Document
 editors and WG chairs should treat these comments just like any other last
 call comments.

This document addresses both inter-session and intra-session replay attacks
when using manual keying for OSPFv2 by changing the sequence numbers to be
64-bit, with the most significant 32-bits being a boot count and the least
 32-bits to be an increasing sequence number.  The document also changes the
 Apad constant to match the source address of the IP header in order to extend
 authenticated data to prevent source address spoofing.

The document was well written and I very much appreciated the redline style
approach to the draft.

I consider this document ready for publication.
