Abstract

This document attempts to clarify the notion of the Zero Window Probes (ZWP) described in RFC 1122 [RFC1122]. In particular, it clarifies the actions that can be taken on connections which are experiencing the ZWP condition. The motivation for this document stems from the belief that TCP implementations strictly adhering to the current RFC language have the potential to become vulnerable to Denial of Service (DoS) scenarios. Status of this Memo This Internet-Draft is submitted to IETF in full conformance with the provisions of BCP 78 and BCP 79.

Internet-Drafts are draft documents valid for a maximum of six months and may be updated, replaced, or obsoleted by other documents at any time.
