This paper is the first to evaluate the feasibility of deploying QUIC, a new UDP-based transport protocol currently undergoing IETF standardization, directly on resource- constrained IoT devices. It quantifies the storage, compute, memory and energy requirements of the Quant QUIC stack on two different IoT platforms, and finds that a minimal standards-compliant QUIC client currently requires approximately 58 to 63KB of flash, around 4KB of stack, and can retrieve 5KB of data in 4.2 to 5.1 s over 0-RTT or 1-RTT connections, using less than 16 KB of heap memory (plus packet buffers), less than 4 KB of stack memory and less than 1.09 J of energy per transaction.

BibTeX entry
BibTeX does not have the right entry for preprints. This is a hack for producing the correct reference:
  author = {Lars Eggert},
  title = {Towards Securing the Internet of Things with QUIC},
  howpublished = {EasyChair Preprint no. 2434},

  year = {EasyChair, 2020}}
