I have reviewed this document as part of the security directorate's
ongoing effort to review all IETF documents being processed by the IESG.
These comments were written primarily for the benefit of the security
area directors.  Document editors and WG chairs should treat these
comments just like any other last call comments.

This document presents no new security considerations over the RFC it
seeks to update.  For a provisioning protocol the primary security
considerations relate to authentication, which does not belong here, and
authorization, which does belong here.  The security considerations
section of this I-D appears to be complete.
