"...completely trusted." - begs the question, by whom?
for me to completely trust a system, its air-gapped, in
a concrete block, inside a farady cage, with no display,
keyboard or other input device, preferably powered off.
I can;t remember who stated this lema; "If you want your
[data, systems] private, don't put them on the net."
