    This is partly why things like USB debugging are disabled, and the kernel locked, by default.

    Still, there's not a lot that can be done about theoretical cold-boot attacks on DRAM, although whether they're possible in practice is another matter.

    I wonder if we'll see something like a small on-die SRAM store for master keys, for instance? Encrypted memory is another potential option, at the expense of performance/latency, IIRC the current consoles use encrypted RAM.
