Status: Verified
Type: Technical

Reported by: Araki Makoto <mnfeconicu41@gmail.com>

Original Text
-------------
      do {
        base = H(max(Alice,Bob) | min(Alice,Bob) | password | counter)
        temp = KDF-n(seed, "Dragonfly Hunting And Pecking")
        seed = (temp mod (p - 1)) + 1

Corrected Text
--------------
      do {
        base = H(max(Alice,Bob) | min(Alice,Bob) | password | counter)
        temp = KDF-n(base, "Dragonfly Hunting And Pecking")
        seed = (temp mod (p - 1)) + 1

Notes
-----
A variable "seed" is passed to the function KDF-n before defined. It should be the variable "base" instead of "seed". The variable "base" is passed to KDF-n in Figure 1.
