> Wake currently uses TCP connections for its messages. This is fast and efficient, but
provides challenges in some network environments. Also, it is considerable work to support
authentication and encryption.
> We could provide HTTP(S) as an alternative protocol for Wake. This transport will likely
be less efficient than the current path, but gain in security. And for the relatively small
messages used by the REEF control flow, the trade-off is likely worth it.
