SCipTiPpy, SCipTiPpy, SCipTiP-teree:
an introduction to SCTP

La Monte H.P. Yarroll

College of DuPage - K161


TCP is the best known of the Internet transport protocols. A new transport protocol, SCTP, is ready to join the team. Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) is, at its core, a reliable, message-oriented, multihomed transport protocol. Originally developed to carry telephone switching information (SS7 over IP), SCTP has evolved into a protocol suitable for any service uses message or wants to take advantage of multihoming.

This presentation will provide information for people who might need to design or develop SCTP-based systems, and for those who might want to contribute the the Linux kernel implementation effort.
