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.

1.� Introduction

1.1.� Overview

� � This document describes the usage of the Transport Layer Security

� � (TLS) protocol, as defined in [RFC2246], over the Stream Control

� � Transmission Protocol (SCTP), as defined in [RFC2960] and [RFC3309].

� � TLS is designed to run on top of a byte-stream oriented transport

� � protocol providing a reliable, in-sequence delivery.� Thus, TLS is

� � currently mainly being used on top of the Transmission Control

� � Protocol (TCP), as defined in [RFC793].

� � Comparing TCP and SCTP, the latter provides additional features and

� � this document shows how TLS should be used with SCTP to provide some

� � of these additional features to the TLS user.
