Technical Summary This document defines the SCTP based TML (Transport Mapping Layer) for the ForCES protocol. It explains the rationale for choosing the SCTP (Stream Control Transmission Protocol) [RFC4960] and also describes how this TML addresses all the requirements described in [RFC3654] and the ForCES protocol draft <draft-ietf-forces-protocol>. Working Group Summary There is strong working group consensus behind this document. It is an effort of several years work. Document Quality The document has been well reviewed. An interop in July 2009 between 3 different implementations by WG participant utilizing draft version 4 was successful. In addition, there are two different extensions to public domain traffic sniffers (ethereal and tcpdump) by 2 other WG participants. Personnel Joel Halpern is the Document Shepherd.
