Esto podria ser de utilidad para reducir el "estado" necesario en

This document describes an algorithm for processing incoming SYN
segments that allows higher connection-establishment rates between
any two TCP endpoints when a TCP Timestamps option is present in the
incoming SYN segment.  This document only modifies processing of SYN
segments received for connections in the TIME-WAIT state; processing
in all other states is unchanged.  This memo documents an Internet
Best Current Practice.

This document is a product of the TCP Maintenance and Minor Extensions
Working Group of the IETF.

BCP: This document specifies an Internet Best Current Practices for the
Internet Community, and requests discussion and suggestions for
improvements. Distribution of this memo is unlimited.
