Received changes through RFC Editor sync (created alias RFC 9187, changed abstract to 'Sliding window protocols use finite sequence numbers to determine segment placement and order.  These sequence number spaces wrap around and are reused during the operation of such protocols.  This document describes a way to extend the size of these sequence numbers at the endpoints to avoid the impact of that wrap and reuse without transmitting additional information in the packet header.  The resulting extended sequence numbers can be used at the endpoints in encryption and authentication algorithms to ensure input bit patterns do not repeat over the lifetime of a connection.', changed pages to 10, changed standardization level to Informational, changed state to RFC, added RFC published event at 2022-01-31, changed ISE state to Published RFC)
