This document provides guidance on how to implement and use the
Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) in Constrained-Node Networks
(CNNs), which are a characteristic of the Internet of Things (IoT).
Such environments require a lightweight TCP implementation and may
not make use of optional functionality. This document explains a
number of known and deployed techniques to simplify a TCP stack as
well as corresponding trade-offs. The objective is to help embedded
developers with decisions on which TCP features to use.

This document is a product of the Light-Weight Implementation Guidance Working Group of the IETF.
