I would like to know more about the 3 protocols which extend from the Cardano pipe. My biggest questions are:

What is the encoding / structure of the protocol(s)? Is tls used here and why/why not? Is compression used at all?

How can one start to interface? There is not much by way of documentation and while I can create quickly, learning is harder. Any useful pointers will be awesome! Thanks guys!

Update 1

So I have now successfully determined that it is not encrypted but am having difficulties parsing it as CBOR. Wish me luck.

  • [cbor.me][1] website is good at decoding cbor to something json-like that you can read. [1]: cbor.me Oct 2, 2021 at 13:01
  • Thanks mate, yeah I've played around a fair bit but the packets aren't valid cbor, I'm thinking it's straight big end binary tbh :s still early on, not sure if I will progress to this level of hackery Oct 2, 2021 at 23:16
