QUIC protocol is considered an experimental environment and a straight forward evolution of the TCP protocol. Applications created on top of QUIC demonstrate being more efficient than the regular HTTPS stack. Computational offload to kernel space is used as performance optimization for modern applications and brings with it a series of architectural and algorithmic challenges. This work presents eQUIC Gateway, a kernel space module that filter packets based on real time information exchanged with a user space
QUIC application. Throughout kernel offload technique for filtering packets, eQUIC Gateway increased the packets throughput in 30.9%, reduced 65% of the average HTTPS request duration under attack and reduced by 26.4% the CPU time consumed for filtering packets. The source code of eQUIC Gateway is public available on Github.
