Has anyone tried creating a (ro) flash-boot linux system for TOR with
all the (rw) stuff mounted in RAM ?
Such a device would raise the bar quite a bit, no? (AFIK, there is no
data remanence problem with DRAM .. unless $they can stop the clock and
keep power applied).
(seeing the $agency come in with a UPS and trying to splice the A/C
without shutting it off, and then carrying out the server on battery
power conjures up memories of a certian Seinfield episode).
