Re: Protection from ROOT

I suspose basic crytpgraphy comes into play here. If the encrypted data
exists on a box, and the box must read from that data, as it would have
to in order to access it. Then understandably the key itself must exist
on the system. Accordingly, somebody who owns the system has access to
all of that. End of story!
