Normally you encrypt /home for live images. I am not sure if live images
will support encrypted / currently. If you are really worried about secret
information ending up on /, one approach is not to supply an overlay area
for updates. That has its own disadvantages, but in practice you'll end
up needing to replace / eventually if you are trying to keep packages
up to date.
