TCP is a transport layer protocol used by applications that require guaranteed delivery. It is a sliding window protocol that provides handling for both timeouts and retransmissions.
TCP establishes a full duplex virtual connection between two endpoints. Each endpoint is defined by an IP address and a TCP port number. The operation of TCP is implemented as a finite state machine.
The byte stream is transfered in segments. The window size determines the number of bytes of data that can be sent before an acknowledgement from the receiver is necessary.
