QUIC: A UDP-Based Multiplexed and Secure Transport

QUIC: A UDP-Based Multiplexed and Secure Transport
RFC 9000


This document defines the core of the QUIC transport protocol. QUIC provides applications with flow-controlled streams for structured communication, low-latency connection establishment, and network path migration. QUIC includes security measures that ensure confidentiality, integrity, and availability in a range of deployment circumstances. Accompanying documents describe the integration of TLS for key negotiation, loss detection, and an exemplary congestion control algorithm.



Since this has little to do with a multimedia desktop operating system and mostly to do with internet packet transports, I changed the classification from “idea” to “off-topic”.

Fine with me. I was just thinking that something new like this could give Haiku an advantage over others.

Btw, what’s so multimedia about Haiku, compared to other OSses? That might have been true once for BeOS, but is that still the case you think?

Not sure why you posted this without context, stuff like SCTP isnt even in Haiku currently :frowning: there are a lot of transports for everything that are superior to http, but somehow people keep coming back to http.

The Register article link just added some context but HTTP 3.0 uses UDP also. I don’t know what’s up with the rest of this though.

Ok I get it. Please remove the post/thread. Sorry for the post.

Which others and what advantage? It is already supported by most web browsers as part of HTTP3 and we’re lagging behind. In fact we’re still at HTTP 1.0, a protocol from the 90s.
