The Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) is a reliable transport layer protocol, standardized by Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). Transport layer is responsible for reliable delivery of messages from one host (source) to another host (destination). The authors are using the key features of SCTP (multi-streaming and multi-homing) with some additional characteristics for transmission of multiple files. In current scenario, SCTP creates streams only at the initial association establishment phase (before the transmission of files strats) and afterwards the steams are not allowed to be changed, but in this paper, they propose that these streams can be modified dynamically by using Dynamic Stream Addition (DSA) policy of multi-streaming.
