SCTP association

The term used in RFC2960 to describe a protocol relationship between SCTP endpoints. SCTP (Stream Control Transmission Protocol) association is composed of two SCTP endpoints and protocol state information including verification tags (a 32-bit unsigned integer that is randomly generated) and the currently active set of Transmission Sequence Numbers (TSNs). The association can be uniquely identified by the transport addresses used by the endpoints in the association.
