4. IANA Considerations

Section 3.44 of this document suggests new text that would update the "Service Name and Transport Protocol Port Number Registry" for SCTP to be consistent with [RFC6335]. IANA has confirmed that it is OK to make the proposed text change in an upcoming Standards Track document that will update [RFC4960]. IANA is not asked to perform any other action, and this document does not request that IANA make a change to any registry.

5. Security Considerations

This document does not add any security considerations to those given in [RFC4960].
