Hi JP,

Whonix privacy distro dev here. If you know any enthusiastic students
who have time for a side project, please tell them about this Codecrypt
(PQ cipher suite we discussed before) feature request for implementing
the stateless signature scheme SPHINCS - or your version SPHINCS+.

Codecrypt currently only supports FMTSeq which is very fragile because
signing key reuse destroys its security properties. Its use in VMs is
particularly hazardous if user rolls back a snapshot and forgets to
backup their keychain beforehand.
