Delay Tolerant Networking (DTN) is currently an open research area following the interest of space companies in the deployment of Internet protocols for the space Internet. Thus, these last years have seen an increase in the number of DTN protocol proposals such as Saratoga or LTP-T. However, the goal of these protocols are more to send much error-free data during a short contact time rather than operating to a strictly speaking reliable data transfer. Beside this, several research work have proposed efficient acknowledgment schemes based on the SNACK mechanism. However, these acknowledgement strategies are not compliant with the DTN protocol principle. In this paper, we propose a novel reliability mechanism with an implicit acknowledgment strategy that could be used either within these new DTN proposals or in the context of multicast transport protocols. This proposal is based on a new erasure coding concept specifically designed to operate efficient reliable transfer over bi-directional links.
