0-RTT TCP Convert Protocol

Tue, 05/26/2020 - 11:19 by Olivier Bonaventure


This document specifies an application proxy, called Transport
Converter, to assist the deployment of TCP extensions such as
Multipath TCP. A Transport Converter may provide conversion service
for one or more TCP extensions. The conversion service is provided
by means of the TCP Convert Protocol (Convert).

This protocol provides 0-RTT (Zero Round-Trip Time) conversion
service since no extra delay is induced by the protocol compared to
connections that are not proxied. Also, the Convert Protocol does
not require any encapsulation (no tunnels, whatsoever).

This specification assumes an explicit model, where the Transport
Converter is explicitly configured on hosts. As a sample
applicability use case, this document specifies how the Convert
Protocol applies for Multipath TCP.
