Technical Summary
 
  The IPsec Authentication Header (AH) and Encapsulating Security
  Payload (ESP) protocols use a sequence number to detect replay.  This
  document describes extensions to the IPsec DOI for ISAKMP.  These
  extensions support negotiation of the use of traditional 32-bit
  sequence numbers or extended 64-bit sequence numbers for a particular
  AH or ESP security association.
