Abstract

This document discusses the generation of TCP timestamps. In particular, it discusses a number of algorithms for producing monotonically-increasing timestamps such that timestamps can be used to reduce the TIME-WAIT state, and an algorithm for generating timestamps that allows for extended SYN-cookies.
