  • Internet applications increasingly employ TCP not as a stream abstraction, but as a substrate for applicationlevel transports, a use that converts TCP's in-order semantics from a convenience blessing to a performance curse. [...] Key Method Atop these extensions, Minion builds application-level protocols offering true unordered datagram delivery, within streams preserving strict wire-compatibility with unsecured or TLS-secured TCP connections. Minion's protocols can run on unmodified TCP stacks, but benefit…Expand Abstract
