Abstract

   This document describes the usage of the Transport Layer Security
   (TLS) protocol, as defined in RFC 2246, over the Stream Control
   Transmission Protocol (SCTP), as defined in RFC 2960 and RFC 3309.

   The user of TLS can take advantage of the features provided by SCTP,
   namely the support of multiple streams to avoid head of line blocking
   and the support of multi-homing to provide network level fault
   tolerance.

   Additionally, discussions of extensions of SCTP are also supported,
   meaning especially the support of dynamic reconfiguration of IP-
   addresses.
