Are there others interested in an SSL library for ChipKit?

I have a need for an SSL library for the ChipKit boards. Are there others looking for SSL for the ChipKit?

What do you mean by SSL? Secure Sockets Layer? I would love that...

Yes, Secure Sockets Layer.

So there are two ethernet libraries for chipKIT and a third on the way. Which were you going to build it on top of? Or would it be fairly generic so that it could sit on any? I would like to be able to serve pages from my house for controlling sprinklers and the like without worrying about random people running up my water bill.

How much program space do you think it will take up?

Jacob, There are SSL libraries that take up as little at 19K.

MatrixSSL comes in at 35 kB to 100 kB.

I'm also interfacing with a watering system, along with sensors (moisture, temperature & light). It will also take into account weather reports.

Maybe we should try to fork one of these, put it on git hub and collaboratively try to get it to work.

Good idea. I would be willing to help - though I probably couldn't start on it for the next 2 months.

Would this include elliptical curve cryptography as well? I know that SSL has plenty of pitfalls for the unwary, so it'd be good to have a library that takes care of the worst of the pitfalls. I'm no expect though!

Any progress on this topic?
