This document describes an extension to the Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) [RFCXXXX] to provide a method to add or delete an IP address from a existing association. Also this document will provide a generic method for transmitting a reliable control chunk. The benefits of these extensions are a) uniform methods for the addition of control chunks that must be reliable and b) for machines with hot pluggable interface cards the ability to add (and or delete) IP addresses dynamically without forcing an association restart.
