This document proposes several new TCP connection related Information Elements (IEs) for the IP Flow Information Export (IPFIX) protocol. The new Information Elements can be used to export certain characteristics regarding a TCP connection. Through massive gathering of such characteristics, it can help build an image of the TCP traffic passing through a network. The image will facilitate the detection of anomaly TCP traffic, especially attacks targeting at TCP.
