basically is what you said. The only difference is that ns-3 is a network simulator, hence porting an actual C++ implementation is not that straightforward.

I know that it does exist a Linux SCTP stack implementation, however in order to "run" it inside ns-3 some bad tricks could be required.

The target of the project is to develop a SCTP implementation specifically targeted to ns-3, so to be able to integrate it seamlessly with actual TCP and UDP models.

Best regards,
