What cryptographic services are available in OpenMoko?

For starts, being secure does not mean faster, you will have to  
encrypt and decrypt which is overhead, thus slower.

As far as encryption libraries, in C you have access to libssl and  
libcrypto which are both usable for C program socket based encryption.

Now I do not understand what you mean by implementing this in  

Javaacript is a clientside language, so the security is in what you  
program and what can be exploitable through specific browsers.

The only other thing I can get out of what you are saying is the  
security of the browser.

Please try to give me more information on what you mean :)

Please fill me in on this cryptography over the "sim". :)
