When I read the part about being Windows-proof, I
*really* liked that idea.
Also, about the audit-proof aspect.
I think it would also work well for
"grandpa's box" - you know, boots from a
read-only CF that starts X and Mozilla - he can't mess anything up, and it
takes about 5 seconds to boot.
Would built-in file encryption be a foolish thing to
wish for some day?
(Maybe when the chips are bigger?)
Not really possible if hard drive access
doesn't go through the BIOS. And our
goal is to completely eradicate the BIOS. However it could be possible to
have encryption for BIOS-bound OSen such as DOS, and require an "auth sector"
be present on the boot media to allow access...
