In particular I hope to be buying Jack and Sokratis lunch today...

Security is a key requirement for me, and I have already done some work on doing AES256 on an AVR to determine feasibility - it seems ok.  Simplicity is also important - if a full implementation will fit in a 16K 8-bit MCU then I would be happy."

These projects will run from early June until early Sept.  Both students are excellent.  One of the students (Shubhangi) is interested in using machine learning to predict room and house occupancy (to automate heating schedules).  The other student, Sokratis, is interested in lower-level stuff and has mentioned that he is really interested in building a general purpose home automation / sensor protocol.

I'm seeing Sokratis later today so I'll discuss with him and get back to you (unless you're reading this, Sokratis?! In which case feel free to jump in, of course!).
