Transport protocols are often tightly-tied to their network layer, specifically designed to take implement functions that the network does not deal with. Not surprisingly, transport protocols also almost always follow the same communication logic as their network layer counterparts.

Moving from inter-connecting machines to inter-connecting information in the network (as suggested by Van, Dirk, Jon, and others), has large consequences in transport protocol design. In this talk, we introduce an early design of a completely new transport protocol. The new protocol is based on the PSIRP pub/sub communication paradigm and it relies heavily on stochastic in-network caches. We also present a simplistic comparison of the new protocol with TCP . (The audience is warned of a road construction ahead; this is very much work in progress.)
