Subject: [boost] Crypto Library Abstract

Here's my abstract for the crypto library proposal. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

"This proposal describes the porting of the cryptography library Botan and its integration with ASIO. Botan is released under the BSD license and the author has already agreed to porting it. The major reason for having a crypto library integrated with Boost is threefold: ASIO has SSL support that should be extracted out, adding TLS support for ASIO requires supporting many other block cipher types, and adding support for cryptography will add reasonable upgrades to Boost.Random and Boost.CRC as well. This is projected to take about 3-4 months to complete."

Thank you,
Chad Seibert
