Well, we use a few things, depending on context.
AES+TwoFish is what Bart probably referred to.
We also have EdDSA, ECDSA, ECDHE (all Curve25519),
and Paillier for homomorphic encryption in special

Well, our code largely just calls the TUN/TAP APIs of the Kernel right
now, so I don't know where we'd there touch with OpenWRT-logic.

I'm not sure this is terribly realistic: it takes quite some time to be
familiar with the codebase (and you can't review code without
understanding what it is supposed to do).  That knowledge doesn't
translate to a different project easily, you have the initial steep
learning curve each time.  So it doesn't quite sound like a win-win.

However, if the OpenWRT folks are interested in helping Bart (& Florian)
get GNUnet onto the WRT platform, that would be great and might be an
actual win-win (we gain a platform, they a capability).

Happy hacking!
