Minion uses TCP-format packets on-the-wire, for compatibility with existing NATs, Firewalls, and similar middleboxes, but provides a richer set of facilities to the application, as described in the Minion Service Model document. This document specifies the details of the on-the-wire protocol used to provide those services.
