Ah ha. In that case indeed, strong physical secrity is in place for
the guts of the machine. Seems like a reasonable approach.
Of course the disk would then have to change (or its encryption) for
swap of whatever hardware is being used to auto, but that's just
Another angle is that there are libraries I think that are used by
software vendors for license validation that key a license to a high
priced piece of software to things like the machine's MAC address, or
the like. I wonder if those might somehow be applicable such that
you could at least implement folder based encryption on the drive
using a key read off a hardware.
I just did a little searching and found there are lots of disk
encryption bits out there. You may want to use one that's GPL or BSD
license depending on what the lawyers say. Lots to choose from it
DiskCryptor and CrossCrypt are aimed at XP and have GPL
licenses. DiskCryptor is the only one of the 2 being maintained
Good luck with the project! Sounds like fun.
