SCTP configuration

SCTP Configuration (EXPERIMENTAL)Edit

    • depends on INET && EXPERIMENTAL


  • Option: IP_SCTP
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) The SCTP Protocol (EXPERIMENTAL)
    • depends on IPV6 || IPV6=n
    • select CRYPTO if SCTP_HMAC_SHA1 || SCTP_HMAC_MD5
    • select CRYPTO_HMAC if SCTP_HMAC_SHA1 || SCTP_HMAC_MD5
    • select CRYPTO_SHA1 if SCTP_HMAC_SHA1
    • select CRYPTO_MD5 if SCTP_HMAC_MD5
      Stream Control Transmission Protocol
      From RFC 2960 <http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2960.txt>.
      SCTP is a reliable transport protocol operating on top of a connectionless packet network such as IP. It offers the following services to its users:
      -- acknowledged error-free non-duplicated transfer of user data, -- data fragmentation to conform to discovered path MTU size, -- sequenced delivery of user messages within multiple streams, with an option for order-of-arrival delivery of individual user messages, -- optional bundling of multiple user messages into a single SCTP packet, and -- network-level fault tolerance through supporting of multi- homing at either or both ends of an association."
      To compile this protocol support as a module, choose M here: the module will be called sctp.
      If in doubt, say N.


  • Option: SCTP_DBG_MSG
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) SCTP: Debug messages
    • depends on IP_SCTP
      If you say Y, this will enable verbose debugging messages.
      If unsure, say N. However, if you are running into problems, use this option to gather detailed trace information


  • Option: SCTP_DBG_OBJCNT
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) SCTP: Debug object counts
    • depends on IP_SCTP
      If you say Y, this will enable debugging support for counting the type of objects that are currently allocated. This is useful for identifying memory leaks. If the /proc filesystem is enabled this debug information can be viewed by 'cat /proc/net/sctp/sctp_dbg_objcnt'
      If unsure, say N


"SCTP: Cookie HMAC Algorithm"

    • depends on IP_SCTP
    • default SCTP_HMAC_MD5
      HMAC algorithm to be used during association initialization. It is strongly recommended to use HMAC-SHA1 or HMAC-MD5. See configuration for Cryptographic API and enable those algorithms to make usable by SCTP.
Note: This default was presumably set before MD5 was proved to be broken. See RH bug 485933.


  • Option: SCTP_HMAC_NONE
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) None
      Choosing this disables the use of an HMAC during association establishment. It is advised to use either HMAC-MD5 or HMAC-SHA1.


  • Option: SCTP_HMAC_SHA1
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) HMAC-SHA1
      Enable the use of HMAC-SHA1 during association establishment. It is advised to use either HMAC-MD5 or HMAC-SHA1.


  • Option: SCTP_HMAC_MD5
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) HMAC-MD5
      Enable the use of HMAC-MD5 during association establishment. It is advised to use either HMAC-MD5 or HMAC-SHA1.
