----------------------------------

             Summary: Consider supporting Unix domain socket connections in libprocess
                 Key: MESOS-5900
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MESOS-5900
             Project: Mesos
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: libprocess
            Reporter: Neil Conway


We should consider allowing two programs on the same host using libprocess to communicate
via Unix domain sockets rather than TCP. This has a few advantages:

* Security: remote hosts cannot connect to the Unix socket. Domain sockets also offer additional
support for [authentication|https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora_Security_Team/1/html/Defensive_Coding/sect-Defensive_Coding-Authentication-UNIX_Domain.html].
* Performance: domain sockets are marginally faster than localhost TCP.
