    You can take a look at our GSoC Ideas page. Unfortunately we weren't accepted as a mentoring org, but it should at least provide a starting place.

  • ecies-ed25519

    ECIES on Twisted Edwards Curve25519 using AES-GCM and HKDF-SHA256

    For example, would consider housing ECIES ( under the RustCrypto organization?

  • SonarLint

  • traits

    Collection of cryptography-related traits (by RustCrypto)

    For ECIES that'd probably be something like HPKE. HPKE isn't specific to ECC though, and is defined in terms of a KEM, so the first step there would probably be defining KEM traits which would allow you to plug in ECDH or potentially a post-quantum algorithm or RSA.
