+# RPC
+
+This directory contains an RPC implementation over attested TLS connection
+written in Rust, providing trusted channels to send and handle requests.
+RPC interfaces and request/response messages can be defined in ProtoBuf and
+used for generating Rust structs and traits to implement services or client
+function to send requests.
+
+Similar with other RPC frameworks, there are several concepts of RPC in
+Teaclave.
+
+## Channel and Client
+
+A channel in RPC represent a connection to the target service. Clients can use
+the channel to send requests. In Teaclave, we implement `SgxTrustedTlsChannel`,
+which can establish and attested a remote connection. For example, to connect
+the management service, you need to establish a trusted channel with the service
+first. Then, create a client of management service with the channel. At last,
+you can use this client to send requests like `InvokeTask`.
+
+When constructing a client, you can use the `SgxTrustedTlsClientConfig` to setup
+TLS and attestation configs.
+
+## Server and Service
+
+Server is an entity to listening a network address, processing incoming
+messages, and forwarding requests to certain service. Similar with channel in
+Teaclave, we implement `SgxTrustedTlsServer`, which can establish an attested TLS
+channel with clients.
+
+Similar with the client, you can use `SgxTrustedTlsServerConfig` to setup TLS
+and attestation configs.
+
+## Protocol
+
+There are many RPC protocols can be implemented in the RPC framework. Currently,
+there's only one simple protocol called `JsonProtocol`. Simply speaking, for
+the json protocol, one RPC message will contain a length of the following
+requests (in big endian) and a json serialized request.
