After reviewing some of the Internet's protocol designs this afternoon,
I was making my way through T/TCP and I began to think about some of the
potential DoS vectors it could introduce. Apparently the potential for
problems are well known. For example:
I'm curious if T/TCP is actively in use or currently enabled by default
in any stack. Though I suspect only the latter would be true for very
specific turnkey systems or applications.
Richard Stevens old T/TCP page indicates that at least at one time
some sites were enabling it:
I didn't find any evidence to indicate that anyone is using it today.
Does anyone have information regarding current use or could someone
summarize it's history?
