|Linux Kernel SCTP
|This is the current BETA release of the Linux Kernel SCTP reference
|SCTP (Stream Control Transmission Protocol) is a IP based, message oriented,
|reliable transport protocol, with congestion control, support for
|transparent multi-homing, and multiple ordered streams of messages.
|RFC2960 defines the core protocol. The IETF SIGTRAN working group originally
|developed the SCTP protocol and later handed the protocol over to the
|Transport Area (TSVWG) working group for the continued evolvement of SCTP as a
|general purpose transport.
|See the IETF website (http://www.ietf.org) for further documents on SCTP.
|The initial project goal is to create an Linux kernel reference implementation
|of SCTP that is RFC 2960 compliant and provides an programming interface
|referred to as the UDP-style API of the Sockets Extensions for SCTP, as
|proposed in IETF Internet-Drafts.
|-lksctp can be built as statically or as a module. However, be aware that
|module removal of lksctp is not yet a safe activity.
|-There is tentative support for IPv6, but most work has gone towards
|implementation and testing lksctp on IPv4.
