In this paper, the authors study the various security issues in transfer protocol-UDT. Next-generation e-science applications will require the ability to transfer information at high data rates between distributed computing centers and data repositories. The development of next generation protocols, such as UDT (UDP-based Data Transfer), promptly addresses various infrastructure requirements for transmitting data in high speed networks. However, this development creates new vulnerabilities when these protocols are designed to solely rely on existing security solutions of existing protocols such as TCP and UDP.
