ClearCrypt's goal is to produce a minimalist transport encryption library
written in a memory-safe language: Rust.

Web site: http://clearcrypt.org/
The problem: http://clearcrypt.org/tls/
Github repo: https://github.com/clearcrypt/clearcrypt

The project is presently complete vaporware, but the goal is to produce a
Rust implementation of a next generation transport encryption library. The
protocol itself is still up for debate, but will likely be based off
CurveCP or Noise.

Emphasis will be placed on simplicity, clarity, and audibility. New
features will be rejected unless they meet these goals. Every commit will
be approved by multiple people once it has been thoroughly audited.

First up: the choice of a license:
