Hi Francesco,

welcome to RIOT first of all.

Cool that you are working with the UDOO boards! BLE development with 
these boards would indeed be a little difficult, as I don't know any 
shields without fully integrated network stack, that would allow for 
access to the BLE link layer.

Porting the Xbee device to RIOT is unfortunately already almost finished 
[1] - I am just sitting on the last fixes and will release a PR in the 
next couple of days...

The security aspect however is not yet included. Taking this to a more 
general approach (valid for not only the xbee device) is however a very 
hot topic. Here I would indeed see a project for GSOC. Do you have 
already any further ideas what you would like to do in this direction? 
It would be nice, if you could roughly sketch our your ideas, so we can 
discuss them further.
