Tcpinc -- Working group mailing list for TCP Increased Security (tcpinc)


About Tcpinc
English (USA)

The TCPINC WG will develop the TCP extensions to provide unauthenticated encryption and integrity protection of TCP streams. The WG will define an unauthenticated key exchange mechanism. In addition, the WG will define the TCP extensions to utilize unauthenticated keys, resulting in encryption and integrity protection without authentication. This is better than plain-text because it thwarts passive eavesdropping, but is weaker than using authenticated keys, because it is vulnerable to man-in-the-middle attacks during the initial unauthenticated key exchange. This work is part of the IETF effort to evolve the Internet architecture given the latest events of pervasive monitoring (see BCP 188).
