Via hacker news I saw this http://www1.informatik.uni-erlangen.de/tresor,
it claims to avoid storing AES decrypted keys in ram by using the CPU's
debug registers, also it seems Linux only for now.

Anything similar out there for use with ssh/ssl and (I know, too much to
ask) cipher agnostic? My search-foo returns mostly nil.

I'll almost consider using a laptop (other than my phone) if there is.
