Maybe these need to be protected.

I'm curious. What would be the point of encrypting a live CD? It
doesn't contain any user data.
A custom CD could certainly contain secrets, but encrypting the whole
CD seems like overkill. How hard is to make a live CD using a loop file
for a directory with secrets?
