Application Layer Routing

Ockam

To enable end-to-end encrypted secure channels that don't expose application data on network intermediaries, Ockam includes a lightweight, binary, application layer routing protocol.

This protocol enables secure channels that can span across the length of multiple network connections. Ockam Routing Protocol messages encode their onward and return routes in the message and can carry arbitrary payload data. This is how we achieve end-to-end encryption.

This design decouples Ockam's suite of cryptographic protocols, like secure channels and credential exchange, from the underlying means of transporting messages.
