Request for feedback on TCP security (IETF effort)

Hello, folks,

I've just posted a revision of the "Security Assessment of the Transmision
Control Protocol (TCP)" IETF Internet-Draft. It's available at the usual
places (including:
http://tools.ietf.org/id/draft-ietf-tcpm-tcp-security-01.txt). (It is a
derivative of the CPNI TCP-security document published last year, available
at: http://www.cpni.gov.uk/Docs/tn-03-09-security-assessment-TCP.pdf)

The current plan is discuss each section of the draft piecemeal (it is a
very large document), get consensus on the changes to apply to the existing
text, and then move on to the next section.

Therefore I'm requesting feedback on all the sections through Section -- this includes the introduction sections, the basic
check on the TCP segment size (Section 3) and the discussion of port numbers
(Section 3.1 with all its subsections).

Please submit comments by Friday March 5th, 2010, so that we can move on to
the next sections in a timely manner.

P.S.: It would be best if you subscribe the TCP WG mailing-list at:
https://www.ietf.org/mailman/listinfo/tcpm . Nevertheless, you can post your
feeback here (please CC me), or send it unicast to fernando () gont com ar , if
you prefer.


Kind regards,
Fernando Gont
