Truecrypt works nicely on USB keys.  I haven't tried using it yet under
a bootable Linux install on a USB key, though I know of one such distro
(Puppy Linux) that uses AES encryption on an optional basis to encrypt a
persistent datastore on a USB key if you configure it to do so.

It would probably have to be stripped down a lot, but XAMPP might be
someplace to start:


Also, Puppy Linux has its own web server that is complex enough to run a
small wiki as a personal tool.  This might be usable for what you speak of.

I haven't had the time lately to play with anything else, but when I do
I'll write it up.
