The paper “An Argument for Increasing TCP’s Initial Congestion Window” argues that the initial TCP congestion control window size of 4 set in 2002 is out of date and should be increased to at least 10.
Radhakrishnan et. al propose a new scheme (Fast Open) that allows clients to send data with their first packet (SYN) to the server. Their goal is to describe a scheme that allows for data to be sent from server to client in the first round trip without introducing significant vulnerabilities to denial-of-service attacks.
Daniel Chiu & James Hong 1. Introduction In their original paper, Dukkipati et. al lay out an argument for increasing TCP’s initial congestion window size . Their motivation for doing […]
Abstract The Chrome web browser keeps HTTP connections open in the hopes of reusing them and reducing the cost of creating TCP connections, but even then about ⅓ of HTTP […]

Joseph Wen (email@example.com) and Tim Hiseh(firstname.lastname@example.org) Introduction Denial of Service attack (DoS) works by forcing a victim host to waste its finite resources (computational power, network bandwidth, …) on useless […]
Team: Nikhil Handigol, Brandon Heller, Vimal Jeyakumar, and Bob Lantz. Key Result(s): DCTCP consistently maintains a small queue occupancy while maintaining high throughput. Source(s): M. Alizadeh, A. Greenberg, D.A. Maltz, […]
Team: Mackenzie Cumings and Anusha Ramesh. Key Result(s): TCP Incast collapse should be observed with increase in number of servers taking part in a “barrier synchronized” transaction for the default […]
Team Members: Ben Shapero and Vaibhav Chidrewar. Key Results: HULL, using software-emulated phantom queues, shows significant reductions in packet transmission latency with only a fractional drop in throughput – even […]
Team: Joseph Marrama and Jack Dubie. Key Result: Increasing TCP’s initial congestion window can significantly improve the completion times of typical TCP flows on the Web. Sources:  Nandita Dukkipati, […]
