This submission updates the OCB draft to reflect Stephen Farrell's suggestions directed at the draft. (Thank you Stephen!)

- Changed all uses of the word "privacy" to "confidentiality".

- Changed sentence in the introduction from

  As with most modes of operation, security degrades in the
  square of the number of blocks of texts divided by two to the
  blocklength.

to

  As with most modes of operation, security degrades as the
  number of blocks processed gets large (see Section 5 for details).

Thank you,
Ted
