I've been having a few talks about the VPN project with Fredrik.  Basically Cryptech has a lot of the core functionalities needed. RNG, chacha, hashes for example. But streaming performance, interfaces and SW would have to be adapted. And there are some additional functionality needed too. Poly1305 for example.

One of the things I think would be useful is a discussion of uses of CrypTech going forward.  There are several possible use cases that we could consider next - this might be one of them.  But what do folks think - would you like to include him in the discussion?
