Abstract: 

QUIC is a new UDP-based transport protocol for the Internet, and specifically, the web. Originally designed and deployed by Google, it already makes up 35% of Google's egress traffic, which corresponds to about 7% of all Internet traffic. The strong interest by many other large Internet players in the ongoing IETF standardization of QUIC is likely to lead to an even greater deployment in the near future. This talk will highlight:

  • Unique design aspects of QUIC
  • Differences to the conventional HTTP/TLS/TCP web stack
  • Early performance numbers
  • Potential side effects of a broader deployment of QUIC
