Not sure what you meant by flatMap, but I would expect a set of API’s to perform encryption\decryption of data, HMAC hashing, etc. Pretty much API’s available in most modern languages without having to jump through hoops. I think if we expect developers to create safe, secure software it needs to be much easier to do so.
