Title:  Cuckoo Filter: Practically Better Than Bloom
Author: Bin Fan, David G. Andersen, Michael Kaminsky, Michael D.  

In many networking systems, Bloom filters are used for high-speed set  
membership tests. They permit a small fraction of false positive answers  
with very good space efficiency. However, they do not permit deletion of  
items from the set, and previous attempts to extend "standard" Bloom  
filters to support deletion all degrade either space or performance.

We propose a new data structure called the cuckoo filter that can replace  
Bloom filters for approximate set membership tests. Cuckoo filters support  
adding and removing items dynamically while achieving even higher  
performance than Bloom filters. For applications that store many items and  
target moderately low false positive rates, cuckoo filters have lower space  
overhead than space-optimized Bloom filters. Our experimental results also  
show that cuckoo filters outperform previous data structures that extend  
Bloom filters to support deletions substantially in both time and space.
