Title: Karim: The Evolution of Transport Protocols
Title: The evolution of transport protocols: An evolutionary game  

Authors: Eitan Altman, Rachid El-Azouzi, Yezekael Hayel, Hamidou Tembine

Speaker: Karim Mattar

Today’s Internet is well adapted to the evolution of protocols at various  
network layers. Much of the intelligence of congestion control is delegated  
to the end users and they have a large amount of freedom in the choice of  
the protocols they use. In the absence of a centralized policy for a global  
deployment of a unique protocol to perform a given task, the
Internet experiences a competitive evolution between various versions of  
protocols. The evolution manifests itself through the upgrading of existing  
protocols, abandonment of
some protocols and appearance of new ones. We highlight in this paper the  
modeling capabilities of the evolutionary game paradigm for explaining past  
evolution and predicting the future one. In particular, using this paradigm  
we derive conditions under which (i) a successful protocol would dominate  
and wipe away other protocols, or (ii) various competing protocols could  
coexist. In the latter case we also predict the share of users that would  
use each of the protocols. We further use evolutionary games to propose  
guidelines for upgrading protocols in order to achieve desirable stability  
behavior of the system.
