Protection and reliability above all else. Nowadays, information plays a significant role in my life. In connection with this very appropriate introduction would be implementing the protocol SCTP (Stream Control Transmission Protocol - «transfer protocol with flow control"), a new version. This will provide protection against SYN-flood attacks, the establishment of a safe connection (using a four-handshake), as well as pleasant innovation in the form of the conservation message boundaries, multi-threading, unordered delivery, support for multiple interfaces. Implementation of this protocol allows the network to bring a new level of speed, reliability, security and data transmission capabilities over the network. Because the new protocol was created, taking into account shortcomings of TCP, in view of the network and make full use of their opportunities, and special attention was paid to safety and security.

It is high time to promote, SCTP everywhere! Given the current active movement towards IPv6. + A lot of goodies from this extract is another good protocol SPDY. You can not hinder the development of technologies and the need to push modern protocols to the masses. It remains to convince Microsoft's usefulness and necessity of these protocols and to persuade them to intensive implementation. By the way Firefox is already implementing a protocol support SPDY (expected in version 11), as well as support going into the popular web-server nginx.

This was also recently discussed at http://zzz.i2p/topics/1033 . Perhaps you can contribute to the discussion there.

It isn't clear to me if you are asking for end-to-end transport of SCTP, or replacement of our streaming protocol with SCTP, or incorporation of SCTP features into streaming. Streaming is not TCP.

If you mean to replace streaming with SCTP, you haven't stated which of the things that SCTP does are things that we need, or things that streaming doesn't do now.

Also, it isn't I2P's job to "promote" SCTP or any other protocol. I don't understand how SPDY, IPv6, or Microsoft is relevant at all to your SCTP proposal.

or, perhaps, you mean to replace our point-to-point TCP transport protocol with SCTP?
