                   Management Information Base (MIB)

Status of this Memo

   This document specifies an Internet standards track protocol for the
   Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions for
   improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the "Internet
   Official Protocol Standards" (STD 1) for the standardization state
   and status of this protocol.  Distribution of this memo is unlimited.

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.

1.  Introduction

   This memo defines the Management Information Base (MIB) module which
   describes managed objects for implementations of the SCTP.

   The document starts with a brief description of the SNMP framework
   and continues with the MIB explanation and security consideration
   sections among others.

   The managed objects in this MIB module are based on [RFC2012] update:
   "Management Information Base for the Transmission Control Protocol
   (TCP)" referred as [TCPMIB] (work in progress), and RFC 3291 "Textual
   Conventions for Internet Network Addresses" [RFC3291].

   Terms related to the SCTP architecture are explained in [RFC2960].
   Other specific abbreviations are listed below.

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this
   document are to be interpreted as described in [RFC2119].
