Very cool stuff Tony!

Major props to you on getting this going! =D

I'm not super familiar with CurveCP, but was rather impressed with MinimaLT after reading their paper.

Can you discuss your thoughts on those two, the pros and cons of each, why you chose one over the other, and whether you'll consider changing your mind? ^_^


Please do not email me anything that you are not comfortable also sharing with the NSA.

ClearCrypt's goal is to produce a minimalist transport encryption library written in a memory-safe language: Rust.

The problem: http://clearcrypt.org/tls/
Github repo: https://github.com/clearcrypt/clearcrypt

The project is presently complete vaporware, but the goal is to produce a Rust implementation of a next generation transport encryption library. The protocol itself is still up for debate, but will likely be based off CurveCP or Noise.

Emphasis will be placed on simplicity, clarity, and audibility. New features will be rejected unless they meet these goals. Every commit will be approved by multiple people once it has been thoroughly audited.

First up: the choice of a license:
