Abstract

� � This document describes functional requirements for IPsec (RFC 2401)

� � and Internet Key Exchange (IKE) (RFC 2409) to facilitate their use in

� � securing SCTP (RFC 2960) traffic.

1.� Introduction

� � The Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) is a reliable

� � transport protocol operating on top of a connection-less packet

� � network such as IP.� SCTP is designed to transport PSTN signaling

� � messages over IP networks, but is capable of broader applications.

� � When SCTP is used over IP networks, it may utilize the IP security

� � protocol suite [RFC2402][RFC2406] for integrity and confidentiality.

� � To dynamically establish IPsec Security Associations (SAs), a key

� � negotiation protocol such as IKE [RFC2409] may be used.

� � This document describes functional requirements for IPsec and IKE to

� � facilitate their use in securing SCTP traffic.� In particular, we

� � discuss additional support in the form of a new ID type in IKE

� � [RFC2409] and implementation choices in the IPsec processing to

� � accommodate for the multiplicity of source and destination addresses

� � associated with a single SCTP association.
