Technical Summary The Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) is a reliable transport protocol operating on top of a connectionless packet network such as IP. It is designed to transport PSTN signaling messages over the connectionless packet network, but is capable of broader applications. This memo defines the Management Information Base (MIB) module which describes the minimum set of objects needed to manage the implementation of the SCTP. There is one existing nit that we need to fix in an RFC-editor note - namely that the SIZE restriction of 115 octets on the sctpAssocRemHostName needs to be removed (should be 255). Working Group Summary The SIGTRAN WG and the TSVWG WG supported this document. Protocol Quality This specification was reviewed for the IESG by Bert Wijnen and Jon Peterson. Further MIB review was performed by the participants of the mreview mailing list.
