Hi all,

I have created a new Internet Protocol "Five Fields".

Why ?
Because IPv6 is hard to use, and I wanted to keep look & feel similar to IPv4. Problem with IPv6, is that those addresses are very hard for humans to remember, compare and visualize topologies in human brain. IPv4 has great look & feel, but it is exhausted. So I wrote a new replacement for IP.

I did it, because I don't like to work with something long like this:
2001:db8:2e1:1a73:149f:88ff:fe81:6116

And it would be better, if we work with simpler addressing:
192.168.510.971.11

10.0.0.0.1

382.201.769.25.133

Draft spec. available.

"Five Fields" offers 0...999 in each field, in dotted decimal
notation, and includes unique features not found *anywhere else*.

- x230,000 times larger address space than IPv4 (should be enough for
several hundred years, including IoT)
-Mobile TCP, allows moving Mobile Nodes between subnets, without
losing connectivity. A replacement for Mobile IP. An order of
magnitude simpler, and requires no access to routers and
configuration-free.
-IP-VRF header extension, allows doing VRF-VPN without MPLS (and
without dot1q VLANs)
-Super-lightweight, and should be faster than IPv4 or IPv6 by 1%-2%.
Small overhead.
-UDP/IP overhead is 28 bytes; UDP/IPv6 overhead is 48 bytes, but
UDP/IP-FF overhead is just 26 bytes ! Even shorter than the original,
yay !
-Simpler to implement than IPv4/v6, because no fragmentation. MTU path
discovery is the way to go.
-No broadcasts.
-No IP header checksums (done at layer 4)
-No autoconfiguration/SLAAC (this belongs to DHCP territory)
-No IGMP required (it is optional now for Multicasts)
-No Layer2 resolution. ARP-free protocol.

I believe, that it is superior to both IPv4 and IPv6, simpler than both, and intended as a replacement for both. Substantial improvement on both.

This draft specification describes various parts, the protocol itself, addressing scheme, Address Resolution Algorithm (without ARP), DNS extensions, Mobile TCP, and more...

With more time and polish, I plan to send it to IETF.

Best wishes,

You're going to have left over bits in your subnets if you use 10 bit addresses but only go to 999.

I genuinely wish you the best of luck with this mate, although I would say that using your time to get used to IPv6 might have been a better use of your talents.
