Welcome to the QUIC classification project. This is a project of Freie Universität Berlin and HAW Hamburg.
The QUIC protocol was designed to improve Web performance and reduce access latency. A crucial part is the connection setup. To successfully reduce roundtrip times and prevent DDoS, a server must not exceed the QUIC anti-amplification limit. Achieving this does not only depend on the amount of data a client sends to a server but also on the configuratoin of the server.
This measurement platform probes the connection setup to a QUIC server and informs about the server behavior. We measure the anti-amplification limit of the server, RTT, and classify the connection setup as follow:
For more details on the measurement method, we refer to our ACM CoNEXT 2022 publication.
The initial version of this implementation was developed during the IETF 115 Hackathon.
