This document describes an extension to the Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) [RFC2960] to provide a method to add or delete an IP address from an existing association or to request the peer to change its primary destination address. The benefit of this extension is for machines with hot pluggable interface cards the ability to add (and/or delete) IP addresses dynamically without forcing an SCTP association restart.
