Not really answering your question about mass-installing Debian but
suggesting another solution/approach:
Did you take a look at Gibraltar Linux (www.gibraltar.at)? It's a Debian
GNU/Linux based Firewall-Distribution which will boot straight off the
CD - should be ideal for your application as many encryption tools and
kernel-patches are already applied to the stock-ISO.
