Wow, these look relevant, let me read through and let you know.

Public Key, the nodes in the network need to communicate with other nodes, and will have to do an adhoc network topology, so I would assume that public key would be best for this atmosphere.

I don't plan on it. I think that ECC is going to be the way that I am going, and the first paper and some of those posted by Thomas are the best way to go.

I don't think I will be re-inventing the wheel, but I was looking for good encryptions that have been proven for small systems, while maintaining security, how I do like your notes on side-channel and fault attacks, as I had no idea about those prior.

The first paper that you linked was exceptionally good and is more of what I was leaning towards. Thank you! Very helpful and constructive. It will take me some time to read through all of your links.

So ECC's are the way to go for small systems, I was reading a paper that state that bit for bit it is better than RSA, I will have to read into them more. Thank you for the links!

comment Alphabetic Substitution with Symbols
So like the 'th' and other tuple letters will still be observable? That is interesting!

You are correct, that is the one I was mentioning, I was getting it confused with this paper: cosic.esat.kuleuven.be/publications/article-614.pdf
