>(SCTP). SCTP was designed to transport PSTN signalling messages over
>IP networks, but is capable of broader application.
>SCTP is an application-level datagram transfer protocol operating on
>top of an unreliable datagram service such as UDP. It offers the
>following services to its users:
>- acknowledged error-free non-duplicated transfer of user data
>- application-level segmentation to conform to discovered MTU size
>- sequenced delivery of user datagrams within multiple streams,
>with an option for order-of-arrival delivery of individual
>- optional multiplexing of user datagrams into SCTP datagrams,
>subject to MTU size restrictions
>- enhanced reliability through support of multi-homing at either or
>both ends of the association.
>The design of SCTP includes appropriate congestion avoidance behaviour
>and resistance to flooding and masquerade attacks.
