Yes, kiosk mode is handled by the Window Manager or the Desktop

In that case, the hardware issues that I mentioned (BIOS password,
no access to USB ports, strong case lock, disabled Ctrl-Alt-Del, no
CD/DVD drive, etc) will still serve you.
Yes, all these options are correct.

But my biggest is the following question.
Is it possible to create a full encrypted filesystem?
for example

I'm going to test this installation, but in this case the best option is to have a usb key, but still there is a problem, at the server location, they don't need to have anything like that to start the server.

Note, though that this is a *Debian* (therefore *Linux) list, so we
can't/won't tell you how to secure MSFT Windows...

I use debian sarge
