CONFIG_IP_SCTP: The SCTP Protocol (EXPERIMENTAL)

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_IP_SCTP has multiple definitions:

The SCTP Protocol (EXPERIMENTAL) found in net/sctp/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_IP_SCTP:

Stream Control Transmission Protocol

From RFC 2960 http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2960.txt.

"SCTP is a reliable transport protocol operating on top of a connectionless packet network such as IP. It offers the following services to its users:

-- acknowledged error-free non-duplicated transfer of user data, -- data fragmentation to conform to discovered path MTU size, -- sequenced delivery of user messages within multiple streams, with an option for order-of-arrival delivery of individual user messages, -- optional bundling of multiple user messages into a single SCTP packet, and -- network-level fault tolerance through supporting of multi- homing at either or both ends of an association."

To compile this protocol support as a module, choose M here: the module will be called sctp.

If in doubt, say N.
