This document describes certain security threats to SCTP.  It also
describes ways to mitigate these threats, in particular by using
techniques from the SCTP Specification Errata and Issues memo (RFC
4460).  These techniques are included in RFC 4960, which obsoletes
RFC 2960.  It is hoped that this information will provide some useful
background information for many of the newest requirements spelled
out in the SCTP Specification Errata and Issues and included in RFC
4960.  This memo provides information for the Internet community.

This document is a product of the Transport Area Working Group
Working Group of the IETF.
