I am trying to implement support for DTLS over SCTP; for this purpose I need to use SCTP AUTH protection.
I have read the RFC 6458 (SCTP Sockets API) and started implementation based on this, but when I tried to compile my code I discovered that lksctp implementation does not support the final API described in RFC 6458, but an old draft-ietf-tsvwg-sctpsocket-07 revision.

I would like to know if there is any plan to upgrade the API from sctp.h in the near future, or if I would better start implementing my application using the current API. I am concerned also about interop problems, as my code should run on FreeBSD and other POSIX systems if possible. Would you have any advice, or any reference code for SCTP AUTH ?

OpenSSL 1.0.1 supports DTLS / SCTP.

I am currently trying to make an association with otter vendor's system. but it is failed. The engineer of peer side requests me to set checksum parameter into INIT Ack. message we sent.

Q1. is it possible to differently set checksum value for each associations on linux-sctp?
Q2.a. If it is possible to set checksum separately, how to set the flag either use or not?
Q2.b. If it is NOT possible, we MUST turn the checksum feature on for whole association? how to do that? I am using lksctp-1.0.10-7 on Linux 2.6.32-432 (RHEL6).
