    12311231After the TLS handshake come some HTTPS requests and responses. Their contents are not visible to the censor, because they are under a layer of HTTPS encryption. A meek session consists of many such requests, each one carrying some data. The web browser extension will reuse the same TLS session for many requests, so it doesn't have to do the TLS handshake anew every time.

    12351235What's going on under the HTTPS layer? The Tor stream is being broken into pieces and sent as a sequence of [http://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc2616/rfc2616-sec9.html#sec9.5 HTTP POST] requests. The Tor relay sends back its data in the response body, just as if a web page were being send in response to a POST.
