Hi Graham,

I'm not sure what you're expecting when you refer to a "secure"
reference implementation. Do you mean one with the security protocols,
or one that had been hardened, or one that has been certified by some
organization or other?

If you can give a little more context we can help fill in what you need.

Cheers.....Peter
