Sounds like a good idea (even if we not go for GSoC with the
challenge). I'll think about it.

I also read again through and For me, one major goal appropriate
to tackle during the summer is block-device encryption and I want to
promote it hereby. To use Genode every day in Genode Labs it's crucial
to protect the confidentiality of some information that's part of the
Genode code base, e.g., emails and reports. There are several
expansion stages imaginable to reach the goal and the basic building
blocks (block-device interface, ATA/SATA driver for Qemu) are already
in place.

BTW some of the challenges on our agenda (including iwlagn) depend on
the availability of test hardware. What do you think, does this render
these tasks inappropriate for GSoC?
