Tectia Mapper Protocol defines textual communication between Tectia Server and an external application. Requests are sent by Tectia Server via standard output and responses received via Tectia Server's standard input. The external application may be written in any programming language suitable for the task.

The protocol is used in matching local tunnel constraints with external data. (For more information, see tunnel-local or Local Tunnels in Tectia Server Configuration tool.)
