User Datagram Protocol

Post  somindradilruk on Sun Dec 28, 2008 8:24 am

User Datagram Protocol
----------------------

Introduction
------------

This User Datagram Protocol (UDP) is defined to make available a
datagram mode of packet-switched computer communication in the
environment of an interconnected set of computer networks. This
protocol assumes that the Internet Protocol (IP) [1] is used as the
underlying protocol.

This protocol provides a procedure for application programs to send
messages to other programs with a minimum of protocol mechanism. The
protocol is transaction oriented, and delivery and duplicate protection
are not guaranteed. Applications requiring ordered reliable delivery of
streams of data should use the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) [2].

Format
------


0 7 8 15 16 23 24 31
+--------+--------+--------+--------+
| Source | Destination |
| Port | Port |
+--------+--------+--------+--------+
| | |
| Length | Checksum |
+--------+--------+--------+--------+
|
| data octets ...
+---------------- ...

User Datagram Header Format

Fields
------

Source Port is an optional field, when meaningful, it indicates the port
of the sending process, and may be assumed to be the port to which a
reply should be addressed in the absence of any other information. If
not used, a value of zero is inserted.








User Datagram Protocol RFC 768
Fields



Destination Port has a meaning within the context of a particular
internet destination address.

Length is the length in octets of this user datagram including this
header and the data. (This means the minimum value of the length is
eight.)

Checksum is the 16-bit one's complement of the one's complement sum of a
pseudo header of information from the IP header, the UDP header, and the
data, padded with zero octets at the end (if necessary) to make a
multiple of two octets.

The pseudo header conceptually prefixed to the UDP header contains the
source address, the destination address, the protocol, and the UDP
length. This information gives protection against misrouted datagrams.
This checksum procedure is the same as is used in TCP.

0 7 8 15 16 23 24 31
+--------+--------+--------+--------+
| source address |
+--------+--------+--------+--------+
| destination address |
+--------+--------+--------+--------+
| zero |protocol| UDP length |
+--------+--------+--------+--------+

If the computed checksum is zero, it is transmitted as all ones (the
equivalent in one's complement arithmetic). An all zero transmitted
checksum value means that the transmitter generated no checksum (for
debugging or for higher level protocols that don't care).

User Interface
--------------

A user interface should allow

the creation of new receive ports,

receive operations on the receive ports that return the data octets
and an indication of source port and source address,

and an operation that allows a datagram to be sent, specifying the
data, source and destination ports and addresses to be sent.

RFC 768 User Datagram Protocol
IP Interface



IP Interface
-------------

The UDP module must be able to determine the source and destination
internet addresses and the protocol field from the internet header. One
possible UDP/IP interface would return the whole internet datagram
including all of the internet header in response to a receive operation.
Such an interface would also allow the UDP to pass a full internet
datagram complete with header to the IP to send. The IP would verify
certain fields for consistency and compute the internet header checksum.

Protocol Application
--------------------

The major uses of this protocol is the Internet Name Server [3], and the
Trivial File Transfer [4].

Protocol Number
---------------

This is protocol 17 (21 octal) when used in the Internet Protocol.
Other protocol numbers are listed in [5].
