Apropos of this topic construed broadly, just got the following in my email. I'm thinking about a MicroZed network appliance anyway, so a PMOD interface is interesting because that's the MicroZed peripheral standard. But wouldn't it be nice if one could have this kind of authentication in a router?
It's a nice little chip, easy to interface to almost anything. Pretty easy to make a PCB that can be added to almost any commercial "home router".
