Transmission Control Protocol

[tranz‚mish·ən kən′trōl ‚prōd·ə‚kȯl]
(communications)
The set of standards that is responsible for breaking down and reassembling the data packets transmitted on the Internet, for ensuring complete delivery of the packets, and for controlling data flow. Abbreviated TCP.

Transmission Control Protocol

(networking, protocol)
(TCP) The most common transport layer protocol used on Ethernet and the Internet. It was developed by DARPA.

TCP is the connection-oriented protocol built on top of Internet Protocol (IP) and is nearly always seen in the combination TCP/IP (TCP over IP). It adds reliable communication and flow-control and provides full-duplex, process-to-process connections.

TCP is defined in STD 7 and RFC 793.

User Datagram Protocol is the other, connectionless, protocol that runs on top of IP.

We study these transitions using n-gram analysis and a sliding timewindow to detect any attacks that are based on using TCP protocol as soon as they occur [5].
During the DNP 3RestartWarm attack, our behavior analysis engine will observe many RD-RD-RST-RD-RD patterns within a given window and thus will be able to detect such an attack similar to our successful approach to analyze TCP protocol transitions.
TCP protocol can be improved by allowing the sender to maintain appropriate window size and proper sending rate when random packet loss occurs.
The models of TCP protocol are gradually refined [8-10] in wired networks.
TCP protocol contains several phases including slow-start, congestion avoidance, fast retransmit, fast recovery and timeout.
shows the comparison of the scalability of the main implementation of the TCP protocol.
Most of the existing TCP protocols for the CRN do not mention how they react on interrupting events not related with PU, such as wireless link errors.
As mentioned above, most TCP protocols for the CRN have assumed that either all network devices are connected by CR links or that at least the TCP sender is connected by a CR link.
Furthermore, ATCS doesn't assume any traffic pattern and is compatible with traditional TCP protocols.
Although the capacity gain and reliability gain are well-known, there are few studies on the practicality of using network coding in TCP protocols.
