This document describes an extension to the Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) [RFC2960] to provide a generic method for transmitting a reliable control chunk. This provides a framework whereby future applications which require a specific SCTP control chunk(s) to be sent reliably can use this extension to provide the required functionality.
