Is there an isolinux that will open an encrypted boot partition.


I was wondering if there is a version of isolinux or a simular boot loader for Linux, that boots the kernel from an encrypted boot partition? If not, are there any roadblocks that would prevent adding encryption to isolinux?

Yes, encrypting the root file system should work for a LiveCD, but I also want to encrypt the kernel, which requires isolinux to be LUKS aware. Again, does anyone know of a isolinux that is LUKS aware?
