It runs a very recent kernel (3.18, IIRC).
The devel prototype originally ran OpenWrt; should be pretty easy to
make OpenWrt run on it again. Has a speaker on it (so you can do proof of
actual presence to help bootstrap security stuff). Ath10k wireless. Has a
TPM module on board, so you could do a poor man's hsm for storing keys.
Android style unlockable bootloader. The intent is it be an open
platform. Has a hardware packet assist engine: there will be the usual
issues of latency vs. bandwidth; not much use of that this instant.
Current software admin is done entirely via Android apps and a google back
end: no web gui for it at the moment (Trond isn't comfortable with a web
server on the router). Secure upgrade of the firmware.
