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 tech-pkg@NetBSD.org WRT that.
