I have a FPGA and am curious what cryptographic applications I can use with it. I'm just a hobbyist / security researcher and not a professional cryptographer.
Since I'm creating my own curriculum, what cryptographic goals should I have with regards to the FPGA device? (note I'm not looking for FPGA programming advice, that's a goal all in of itself)
I'm also interested in learning what won't work with a FPGA... in other words, what algorithms are or aren't suited for a FPGA?
