*** Microsoft Assigned Patent for Transparent Auto-discovery of Network Devices Logically Located between a Client and Server ALEXANDRIA, Va., Dec. 19 -- Microsoft, Redmond, Wash., has been assigned a patent (8,335,858) developed by six co-inventors for a "transparent auto-discovery of network devices logically located between a client and server." The co-inventors are Murari Sridharan, Sammamish, Wash., Deepak Bansal, Redmond, Wash., Eran Yariv, Zichron, Israel, Ronen Barenboim, Haifa, Israel, Maxim Stepin, Redmond, Wash., and Alexander Malvsh, Bothell, Wash.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Discovery of intermediate network devices is performed using a technique that piggybacks upon the existing standard TCP (Transport Control Protocol) "SACK" (Selective Acknowledgment) option in a SYN/ACK packet so that discovery information may be shared between pair-wise-deployed peer intermediate devices when a TCP/IP connection (Transport Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) is first established between network endpoints using a conventional three-way handshake. Use of the SACK option is combined with another technique which comprises modifying the original 16-bit value of the TCP receive window size to a special arbitrary value to mark a SYN packet as being generated by a first peer device. The marked SYN when received by the second peer device triggers that device's discovery information to be piggybacked in the SACK option of the SYN/ACK packet. The first device then piggybacks its discovery information in the SACK option of the ACK packet which completes the three-way handshake."
