The host will have both physical and logical access to your
process space, therefore you're compromised regardless
of where you physically keep the keys or how you acccess

Though there are trac tickets you can search for involving
loading keys into tor controller via remote tunnel without need
to leave and mount or access physical devices in /dev.
