Two things come to mind:

1) the PGP handling as used in side NetBSD, to sign keys, establish trust, 
sign and en/decrypt messages and files as well as keep data public (in 
files and on key servers).

2) signed binary pkgs. See pkg_add -s. I think there's room for changing 
the interface in pkg_add etc. as it's not actively used right now (as far 
as I know). Communication should happen on WRT that.
