The best way to do that is to not have the data on the remote machine in
the first place, but doing that is hard.  A program that doesn't store
anything locally but treats all text as images may work, but it doesn't
beat the screen capture.

The problem is your CD has to have something on it to say "yes I am the
real deal" and of course that something can lie.
