So what would it take to get a standard set of crypto API's built into the language?

I don't know if we need a boost-like parent project in order to start building core code to be brought for inclusion.

I think success will naturally bring such a project structure - people seeking a curated and integrated set of frameworks to get common functionality.

This seems like a great candidate for a library that could be developed in the community and then possibly brought into Corelibs in a future version
true - but sadly, there seems to be either no interest or manpower for a boost-like infrastructure...
Like many other fundamental topics, I don't think crypto belongs to the stdlib, but none the less, there should be a standard library for encryption/hashing.
