New Nuts-n-bolts Talk paper accepted.
Christoph Paasch, Mat Martineau, Peter Krystad and Matthieu Baerts
have been working very hard on kernel Multipath TCP(RFC 6824) support.
There have been difficulties in the past in upstreaming this
implementation due to its invasive architecture; however,
the authors feel that they have better understanding since
the last time they showed up at netdev conf 0.1:
The current MPTCP implementation has moved from it researchy
origins and is already used by millions of devices in production
environments. The protocol standardization is also now complete.
For these reasons the authors feel that experience has gained
them a lot of insight and they are ready to move forward
In this talk, the authors will do a gentle introduction of
Multipath TCP and mention some uses cases already in production.
They will discuss the challenges faced - both resolved and
ongoing. More importantly they will be looking for feedback on how to
best revamp the current implementation for upstreaming purposes.
