Thanks for the Xbee driver,I'll wait the PR for testing!

The security aspect is about including in RIOT the possibility to
dynamically insert a set of encryption keys at run time through an external
channel (I have a collegue working on NFC driver on  RIOT).
Basically,the keys I want to exchange are those concering the 802.15.4
protocol,but we can use the same technique for RPL or CoAP.
