TCPLS : integrating TCP and TLS
TCP and TLS are independant protocols and TLS makes very few assumptions on the service provided by the underlying TCP implementation. This layering separation allows one TLS implementation to be easily adapted to various TCP implementations
TCPLS takes a different approach. Since both TCP and TLS are often used together, we reconsider their interactions and design a protocol that uses the features from one protocol to improve the other.
TCPLS is a work in progress. We are continuously developing the prototype and will publish new use cases and experiments in the coming weeks on this website.
