Multiple Associations with Stream Control Transmission Protocol
This series of articles has covered the basics of SCTP. There are many options that can control, in fine detail, the behaviour of an SCTP stack. There also is ongoing work in bringing a security model into SCTP, so that, for example, TLS can be run across SCTP. There also is work being done on different language bindings to SCTP, such as a Java language binding. SCTP will not make TCP and UDP disappear overnight, but I hope these articles have shown that it has features that can make writing many applications easier and more robust.
Of course, SCTP is not the only attempt to devise new protocols. For comparisons to other new procotols see “Survey of Transport Protocols other than Standard TCP” at www.ogf.org/Public_Comment_Docs/Documents/May-2005/draft-ggf-dtrg-survey-1.pdf. This shows that SCTP stacks up very well against possible alternatives, so you might want to consider it for your next networking project!
