This document updates RFC 3552 Security Considerations for Transient numeric
identifiers employed in network protocols. Currently RFC 3552 does not address
transient network identifiers exploitation by pervasive monitoring.

Major issues:

Minor issues:
My suggestion is to maybe have examples section similar to RFC 3552 that gives
examples of the security implications of the various types of transient numeric
identifiers. An example for IPv6 IID would be using modified EUI64 versus RFC
4941 privacy extension or even RFC 7217 / RFC 8064 stable IID.
