I just registered a conceptual design for a BeagleBone Black (BBB) cape. I’m calling it the CryptoCape and its goal is to enhance the cryptographic capabilities of the BBB. I’ve created a project page here.
I’m excited and hopefully others are too, but I will not make very fast progress. My soldering kit from SparkFun is in the mail and I have to learn to solder :) I’ve requested some free samples of cryptographic Integrated Circuits (ICs) so I will hopefully be testing the basics in the next few weeks.
