The document entitled "TCP Usage Guidance in the Internet of Things (IoT)"
has been published as RFC 9006.

While the LWIG WG has been the home for the document, we have also
received quite a lot of very valuable input from TCPM. Thanks for all the

We also hope that this document can contribute to increase the
popularity/reputation of TCP for IoT environments, where TCP has often
been unfairly criticized.

This document provides guidance on how to implement and use the
Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) in Constrained-Node Networks
(CNNs), which are a characteristic of the Internet of Things (IoT).
Such environments require a lightweight TCP implementation and may
not make use of optional functionality. This document explains a
number of known and deployed techniques to simplify a TCP stack as
well as corresponding trade-offs. The objective is to help embedded
developers with decisions on which TCP features to use.

This document is a product of the Light-Weight Implementation Guidance
Working Group of the IETF.
