Improving TCP-Friendliness and Fairness for mHIP

Multi-homed environments are getting increasingly common, especially for mobile users. mHIP was designed to provide secure multipath data transmission for the multi-homed hosts and boost throughput of a single TCP connection by effectively distributing data over multiple available paths. In this paper, the authors develop a TCP-friendly congestion control scheme for mHIP secure multipath scheduling solution. They enable two-level control over aggressiveness of the multipath flows to prevent stealing bandwidth from the traditional transport connections in the shared bottleneck. They demonstrate how to achieve a desired level of friendliness at the expense of inessential performance degradation.
