Technical Summary
 
   A local host may have multiple points of attachment to the
   Internet, giving it a degree of fault tolerance from
   hardware failures. SCTP was developed to take full advantage
   of such a multi-homed host to provide a fast failover and
   association survivability in the face of such hardware
   failures. This document describes an extension to SCTP that
   will allow an SCTP stack to dynamically add an IP Addresses
   to an SCTP association, dynamically delete an IP addresses
   from an SCTP association, and to request to set the primary
   address the peer will use when sending to an endpoint.
 
Working Group Summary

   reviewed by several people in the WG last call. Comments
   raised have been addressed.
 
Document Quality
 
   Several SCTP implementations, including Solaris, BSD, Linux and HP,
   have implemented this extension.
