Rocks (Reliable Sockets) protects sockets-based applications from network failures, especially those common to mobile computing (link failures, IP address changes, and extended periods of disconnection). Rock-enabled programs keep running after these events; their broken connections recover automatically (even when one end of the connection has a new IP address), without loss of in-flight data, when connectivity returns. The program also authenticates the resumed connections. It works entirely at user level and is transparent to ordinary applications.
