Choosing a secure element is the toughest part of this project. All the popular ones, (NXP, Infineon, etc) are proprietary & go against the openness of the project & therefore can not be used. In order to keep the openness of the project, I have chosen to base my secure element design off of work done on cryptocores over at

The design should be very minimal as to keep the attack surface as small as possible. Also, best practices for side channel & tamper resistance will need to be included.
