In this talk we will present an overview of the current design and implementation of the new wire protocol (the protocol used for communication between pairs of daemons and daemons and clients), named Messenger V2, that aims to overcome the limitations of the current protocol, such as the possibility to encrypt all data transferred on the wire.

We will start by describing the current wire protocol design and pinpoint its limitations, which will pave the way to present the new protocol features. Then we will present the details of the new protocol design, it's new features, and how to deal with clients from older Ceph versions. We will also talk briefly about some of the possible future features that can be implemented by extending the base protocol.
