I've proposed a GSoC project to improve SSL and PKI in Debian[1]

Several students with an interesting background have already contacted
me about this, but I may need additional help from co-mentors to make
the project a reality

The scope is deliberately quite broad: my own packages use TLS
certificates for SIP, but the work done by a GSoC project would be
generalised to support all kinds of use cases, including HTTPS, VPN,
mail, ...

Would anybody else be interested in assisting with this?
