SCTP Packet Structure

SCTP Packet Structure

The Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) has a simpler basic packet structure than TCP. Each consists of two basic sections:

  1. The common header, which occupies the first 12 bytes. In the diagram to the right, this header is highlighted in blue.
  2. The data chunks, which form the remaining portion of the packet. In the diagram, the first chunk is highlighted in green and the last of N chunks (Chunk N) is highlighted in red.
