I need a secure, reliable, ordered messages protocol.

TLS/TCP only does streams.
DTLS/UDP doesn't do reliability or ordering.
SCTP isn't secure.

Help?

Preferably something with a Python binding available.

@zalandocalrissian Because I don't want to bother with HTTP's complexity when all I want is secure reliable messages?

@alexbuzzbee no need to run a full-blown webserver or anything, the python ecosystem has you covered: github.com/tripzero/python-wss

and after connection establishment, websocket doesn't really add overhead. you'll get through many firewalls as a bonus.

@zalandocalrissian It's still unnecessary initialization overhead. I'm going to keep looking.
