A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.
This draft is a work item of the TCP Maintenance and Minor Extensions Working Group of the IETF.

	Title           : Clarification of sender behaviour in persist condition.
	Author(s)       : M. Bashyam, et al.
	Filename        : draft-ietf-tcpm-persist-00.txt
	Pages           : 11
	Date            : 2010-06-02

This document attempts to clarify the notion of the Zero Window
Probes (ZWP) described in RFC 1122 [RFC1122].  In particular, it
clarifies the actions that can be taken on connections which are
experiencing the ZWP condition.  The motivation for this document
stems from the belief that TCP implementations strictly adhering to
the current RFC language have the potential to become vulnerable to
Denial of Service (DoS) scenarios.
