Abstract

   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 public switched

   telephone network (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.
