Technical Summary: QUIC is a standards-track, UDP-based, stream-multiplexing, encrypted transport protocol. Its main features are minimizing connection establishment and overall transport latency for applications such as HTTP/3, providing multiplexing without head-of-line blocking, requiring only changes to path endpoints to enable deployment, providing always-secure transport using TLS 1.3. This document set specifies the QUIC transport protocol and it version-independent invariants, its loss detection and recovery approach, its use of TLS1.3 for providing security, and a new version of HTTP that uses QUIC (HTTP/3), along with QPACK for header compression in that protocol. Working Group Summary: As can be expected, discussion on many aspects of QUIC was quite intense. The resulting consensus, however, was judged by the chairs to be both strong and broad. Document Quality: There are over twenty implementations of QUIC that are participating in interop testing, including all major web browsers and many server, CDN and standalone library implementations. The acknowledgements sections of the I-Ds highlight the individuals that made major contributions to a given document.
