Abstract-- The Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP)
is being standardized by IETF as a reliable transport protocol
to address a number of limitations of TCP. Due to its attractive
features such as multi-streaming and multi-homing, SCTP has re-
ceived much attention from the research community and industry.
This paper serves as a tutorial by introducing the main features

implement SCTP. Finally, the challenges faced by SCTP research
community are identified with a view to stimulating further re-
