This component is an asynchronous NATS consumer which serves as a fault-tolerant compute backplane for scaling cryptographic IOPS on behalf of the API.

This backplane also handles autonomous detection of large packets, fragments and routes them over NATS (i.e., instead of via the REST API). The fragmented packets are reassembled at each recipient endpoint prior to processing. This method is scalable and very useful in the case of, for example, arbitrarily-large witness parameters.

Documentation forthcoming.
