I've looked in the Handheld Linux Software Index and several feeds and haven't found a suitable power-on password program.

Does anyone know of one that? :

1) Requires password on power-on or returning from suspend mode.
2) Ability to set password minimum length
3) Password function can't be bypassed with a soft or hard reboot.
4) Display hint if password forgotten.
5) Has a configurable splash screen to display owner information when the device is powered on/un-suspended or when the incorrect password is entered.
6) Nice to haves: a) lock-out infrared and all external data transfers cool.gif 128-bit encryption of select files, directories, and entire external media cards (SD, CF) c) Data self-destruct option

There are several good free, shareware and commercial applications for the Palm OS and I was hoping at least one of these has been ported for the Zaurus or that there is a suitable equivalent out there somewhere.

Thanks in advance
