From: Eric Curtin <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: Kernel development list <email@example.com>, firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Looking for an open-source thesis idea Date: Fri, 22 May 2020 21:52:22 +0100 Message-ID: <CANpvso4V67SBKn9+SXc+H=r-H-up+GWt77K4jH5HJx9k+sR+hA@mail.gmail.com> (raw) Hi Guys, Hope I'm not bothering you. I'm looking for a masters thesis idea, and if possible doing one related to open source software (of course I have the option of tying it in to the Powermax kernel I work on also with Dell). One idea that sprung to mind is, I'm really liking this new QUIC (UDP) protocol as an alternative to TCP over TLS. And with the growth of new modern secure protocols like Wireguard. I was wondering, would it be an idea to do a monolithic secure TCP protocol (as an alternative to TCP over TLS) as a small thesis project or is it as hard as the guys at Google make is sound? "Because TCP is implemented in operating system kernels, and middlebox firmware, making significant changes to TCP is next to impossible." I'm open to any other suggestions also for my thesis :) The middlebox firmware sounds like it could be the issue I guess.
