Hardened has a ~500 meg livecd for the x86 arch which may work for your 
needs. You can use it for many of things like forensics of compromised
computer, rescue cd, install cd, work station, misc appliance. It
combines a squashfs + uninonfs so you can save/load data or quickly add
a package from a usb keychain and a number of other useful tools for the
security minded admin. I'm not a cryptographic freak myself but I don't
see any reason why the personal encrypted data you wanted to load could
not come from the usb device. Questions, suggestions, ideas for
improvements can be sent to the gentoo-hardened mailing list.
Default console only login is hardened with the pass of hardened, the 
hardened user can sudo to root.
