Abstract

The Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) is the workhorse of the Internet. First defined in 1974, it lets applications send one another streams of data that, if they arrive at all—that is, unless a connection dies because of a network problem—are guaranteed to arrive intact, in order, and without duplication.
