1.7 Summary

In this chapter we first reviewed some basic concepts and the background of IP networking. We then introduced the SCTP protocol and described its basic fea-tures and its role in the IP architecture. We also talked about the motivation behind the creation of SCTP and provided a detailed feature comparison for SCTP, TCP, and UDP. The history of the SCTP protocol development was recounted, and some important IETF debates over SCTP design were summarized.
