[erlang-questions] Securing link between nodes

I know this question has been asked before, but I have a few more
questions about it.

I am wanting to encrypt all communications between each node
transparently(that is to say, without the erlang code knowing anything
about it). It appears the best you can do now is use SSL for
authentication, but it still doesn't encrypt the actual messages.

My question is, whatever happened to this thesis that someone wrote
about SafeErlang? It appears they implemented public key encryption
between nodes. But I can't find any downloads or anything. Is anyone
currently working on this problem? If not, I might be interested in
trying it out. I just want to make sure no one else is already doing it.
It definitely seems that this would be a great addition to Erlang.
