UDP is secure and TCP isn't?

Recommended Posts

Info

I noticed that when "spamming" data to the server via TCP (no delay between each send function), the server gets the data all wrong. (this didn't only happen to me in AutoIt)

So I tried doing the same thing with a UDP connection and the data came out fine.

Here's 2 examples of server-client scripts that spam an "abc" string to the server, which then displays the string in a tooltip.

TCP server

TCPStartup()
OnAutoItExitRegister("clean")

Func clean()
TCPShutdown()
EndFunc

$list = TCPListen("127.0.0.1", 8075)

While 1
$accept = TCPAccept($list)
if $accept >= 0 Then
While 1
$recv = TCPRecv($accept, 100)
If Not @error And $recv <> "" Then
ToolTip($recv)
$recv = ""
EndIf
WEnd
EndIf
WEnd

TCP client

TCPStartup()
OnAutoItExitRegister("clean")

Func clean()
TCPShutdown()
EndFunc

$con = TCPConnect("127.0.0.1", 8075)
If @error Then Exit

While 1
TCPSend($con, "abc")
WEnd

UDP server

UDPStartup()

; Register the cleanup function.
OnAutoItExitRegister("Cleanup")

; Bind to a SOCKET
;==============================================
Local $socket = UDPBind("127.0.0.1", 8075)
If @error <> 0 Then Exit

While 1
Local $data = UDPRecv($socket, 50)
If $data <> "" Then
ToolTip($data)
EndIf
WEnd

Func Cleanup()
UDPCloseSocket($socket)
UDPShutdown()
EndFunc ;==>Cleanup

UDP client

UDPStartup()

; Register the cleanup function.
OnAutoItExitRegister("Cleanup")

; Bind to a SOCKET
;==============================================
Local $socket = UDPOpen("127.0.0.1", 8075)
If @error <> 0 Then Exit

$i = 1000

While 1
UDPSend($socket, "abc")
WEnd

Func Cleanup()
UDPCloseSocket($socket)
UDPShutdown()
EndFunc ;==>Cleanup

Result in the TCP server:

Result in the UDP server:

Isn't it supposed to be the other way around?

Why do I get "secured" data in the UDP connection and wrong data in the TCP connection?

Adding Sleep(20) in both TCP examples (even UDP) will give time for the TCPRecv function to breath.

But what if the server and the client are supposed to receive and send information in such short delays? (video games softwares, etc...)

Also, I did what you said in the TCP code and it still receives wrong strings.

I tried it and it worked for me. Search Trac, as I believe there is a ticket floating around about TCPRecv.

I would tell you a joke about UDP, but you might not get it.

TCP, has more over head, and it needs time to coordinate with the sender whether or not the packet actually was received. But that should be handled by the function. It may be worth it to you to run wireshark on both ends to see what exactly is happening.

As far as being secure, the term at least in computing, it usually refers to the ability to withstand attacks or theft. A better title keyword might be reliable?

OK... explanation time.

TCP guarantees that a message will arrive. The server sends a message and then waits for the client to send back a message saying that it was received. If the server doesn't receive an "I got it" message from the client, the server resends the message and the process repeats up to a set number of attempts before failing.

UDP doesn't guarantee the message will arrive. The server sends the message and then goes on about it's business without worrying about whether or not the client received it.

So, in summation, "I would tell you a joke about UDP, but you might not get it" was the joke itself.

@JohnOne: Yeah, me too, but I had to try to help.


Whenever someone says "pls" because it's shorter than "please", I say "no" because it's shorter than "yes".

Hey Info,

Why the aggressive tone? JohnOne wasn't being rude, he was just being playful.

      I have had several people ask for this, so I decided to work the algorithm for it and this is the result.
      What is it?
      A Gateway Proxy Sends and Receives Data Unmodified.
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proxy_server
      What is it used for?
      You can use it as a gateway, relay or router between two known static IP addresses.
      More information is in the header of the script.
      Download: LocalGatewayProxy.au3
      You will need WSA_NBTCP.au3 from here:
      https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/191954-wsa_nbtcp-v100-udf/
      If you have any questions or problems, let me know.

      This script is based on algorithm code from EnrMa.
      Updated: January 22, 2018
      Made improvements. Changes are in the script header.
      Known Issues: AutoIt x64 does not work properly with this script.

      WSA_NBTCP.au3  (Windows Sockets API - Non-Blocking Transmission Control Protocol)
      Version: 1.00
      Type: UDF
      This is an accumulation of WSA code from many sources and modified to suit myself.
      These functions have been thoroughly tested using a Local Proxy Server, which
      is about the most strenuous test you can use.
      Includes my rendition of how a TCPRecv Timeout should work. Also includes a
      timewait/timeout using Select for TCP Send, which works great for that function.
      You will need a loop to use _WSA_TCPRecv(). An example will be forthcoming in a second post.
      Functions:
      #CURRENT_USER_FUNCTIONS
      _WSA_Cleanup
      _WSA_FormatMessage
      _WSA_GetLastError
      _WSA_TCPAccept
      _WSA_TCPCloseSocket
      _WSA_TCPConnect
      _WSA_TCPListen
      _WSA_TCPRecv
      _WSA_TCPSend

      #INTERNAL_FUNCTIONS
      __TimeoutManager
      __TimeoutReset

      #EXTRA_FUNCTIONS
      _WSA_GetAddrInfo
      _WSA_GetHostByAddr
      _WSAAsyncGetHostByName
      _WSAAsyncGetHostByName_Callback
      _WSA_GetNameInfo
       
      Requirements:
      - AutoIt Versions: 3.3.8.1 thru 3.3.15.0 (32Bit only).
      - TCPStartup() at beginning of script on startup.
      - TCPShutDown() and _WSA_Cleanup() on exit.

      AutoIt-SocketIo
      Yep yep, this is pretty much an attempt to port the existing project's concept https://socket.io/ to AutoIt's Codebase. So i will not go in to so much detail.
      This is how the communication is done http://i.imgur.com/0mMfsBD.png Each client is isolated to the server http://i.imgur.com/rVO2LFb.png Features
      Easy API VarType Translation (Example: If the server sends an int, the client will receive an int and vice versa) Fully featured examples Data encryption (Using Autoit's UDF Crypt.au3) Limitations / Drawbacks
      It is not possible to Broadcast/Emit objects Only 1D-arrays are allowed to be Broadcasted/Emitted (2D arrays will probably never be supported) Changelog
      Version 1.5.0 (This update DOES NOT break scripts)
      Added AutoIt like docs under Docs\. The docs are generated so its a 1 to 1 reflection of the UDF headers. Print of documentation Added a production ready server example. Added a new method: _Io_DevDebug which will display useful information when debugging. Added a new method: _Io_SetMaxRecvPackageSize which defaults to whatever _Io_setRecvPackageSize is set to. Added a new method: _Io_setOnPrefix which defaults to _On_ Added a new default client & server event called flood. Flood occurs when exceeding the $__g_io_nMaxPacketSize. $__g_io_nMaxPacketSize is set by _Io_SetMaxRecvPackageSize Fixed the 16 parameter limit when sending data with _Io_Emit, _Io_Broadcast, _Io_BroadcastToAll and _Io_BroadcastToRoom. This works on the same premise that AutoIt's Call Does Fixed a TRUNCATION problem when receiving packages which could cause crashes! Fixed a programming error which caused $__g_ionPacketSize to reset to default 4096 if _Io_Connect or _Io_listenwere called after _Io_setRecvPackageSize Fixed _Io_setEventPreScript and _Io_setEventPostScript They didnt work. Lol. Changed how events are fired so the client cannot crash the server by sending the wrong number of parameters (This also allows for optional parameters on callbacks) Changed _Io_On. The second parameter $fCallback can now be set to null. Doing this, the function assumes that the callback is: _On_<eventName>.

      Hello all.
      In case this is interesting few of you, I share my AMCP 2.1 protocol UDF in AutoIT. This protocol is used by CasparCG server, which is a Windows and Linux software used to play out professional graphics, audio and video to multiple outputs as a layerbased real-time compositor. It has been in 24/7 broadcast production since 2006. It's free and opensource.
      The UDF I share allows communication between an AutoIt based client and the CasparCG, based on following documentation : http://casparcg.com/wiki/CasparCG_2.1_AMCP_Protocol
      If you want more details on CasparCG :  official WebSite or have a look to this video
      I'm currently building a full Client based on AutoIt, with many features like drag-and-drop layers, but sadly I can't share it right now, might come later. Don't hesitate to ask questions if you have any or need a basic example.
      The only requirement for this UDF is the other Event-driven TCP UDF by Kip
