           Summary: Changes to httpd-2.0.55 core/APR-0.9.6 to run on Stream
                    Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP)
           Product: Apache httpd-2.0
           Version: 2.0.55
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: FreeBSD
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Core
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: nataraja@cis.udel.edu


Introduction to SCTP

Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) is a transport layer protocol 
capable of providing reliable (in-order, no loss, no duplicates, no error)
message oriented service to application.
Other interesting features of SCTP include multistreaming (many logical pipes
in 1 SCTP association to transfer independent data without head of line 
blocking problem) and multihoming (ability to support more than 1 interface/
IP address at a SCTP endpoint for fault-tolerance and load balancing purposes). 

Further details on SCTP

o Stream Control Transmission Protocol, RFC 2960.
o www.sctp.org
o www.eecis.udel.edu/~amer/PEL/poc/index.html

Apache over SCTP

o Listen directive in the httpd config file can take the transport layer
  protocol as an extra argument along with IP address and port number.
  This can be either 'sctp' or 'tcp'. If none specified, default protocol
  will be TCP. Refer to httpd.conf for further details.
o If the httpd configure process identifies support for use of SCTP streams
  by system, SCTP streams can be used to send/receive HTTP responses/requests.
  Refer to apr/configure.in for further details. If no such support is
  identified, SCTP without streams can still be used by the user.
o With SCTP streams, every HTTP request can be read on a separate SCTP
  stream and its response is sent on the same stream.
