I am very interested in projects like Kite and the work that’s being undertaken to introduce message level security into OpenStack and would love to help out on that front. In an effort to ascertain the current state of development it would be great to hear from the people who are involved in this and find out what's being worked on or planned in blueprints.

Are you talking about log messages or RPC messages?  For log messages, 
there is a thread that started yesterday on masking auth tokens [1].

If RPC, I'm aware of at least one issue filed against Qpid [2] for 
allowing a way to tell Qpid not to log a message since it might contain 
sensitive information (like auth tokens).

Looks like there is also an older blueprint for trusted messaging here [3].
