TCP projects

For those out there that might be interested, I have been working on/following these FreeBSD networking projects:

  • TCP ECN
  • TCP ABC
  • TCP Congestion Control API
  • TCP ABI cleanup

You can find more information about them at the FreeBSD wiki: http://wiki.freebsd.org/TCPProjects8.

It would be great if all of these could be included in FreeBSD 8.0!

Initial SoC work

I’ve been busy with college assignments, but I’ve been doing some SoC work on my spare time. tcpad is my SoC project for this year and it’s basically a pcap-based TCP session anomaly detector. The basic principle is that, whenever something “strange” happens with a TCP connection, we will dump a pcap file containing the most important packets (TCP FSM transitions and the last 100 packets that arrived prior to the problem).
The current version of tcpad can track only the 3WHS, yet, but more code is to be written as college assignments are all done now.

First entry

Hello there,
This my first entry. I decided to finally start blogging about FreeBSD. :-)
I’m also participating in this years SoC with the TCP anomaly detector project, so, this blog will mainly talk about that.

Good luck to everyone on this years SoC!
