NET CF and Secure Sockets

Our company (and certainly our prime sponser: the US Army) would be very intersted in a fast (most likely symetric) secure socket that runs on PDAs (I.e. Net CF). Secure distribution of keys (that change over time) is also important

Unfortunately, the .NET CF does not have some critical namespaces required by the Security Library to compile [System.Security.Cryptography for instance]. To get the Security Library to compile on the CF, you'd have to implement these classes yourself.

Using the Security Library as a start point for a CF secure socket will certainly be very cost effective compared to an implementation starting from scratch [you'll be able to reuse tons of code from our library], but we currently have no plans to port the library to the CF ourselves.

I put this post in, since there is $$ to be made. We are still working on more basic aspects of the application, but cost+fee development money will probably be available later on in our project.
