    In a world where even CPUs have security bugs and companies rely heavily on opensource (that is written also by someone else) I wouldn't advertise for anything labelled with "Protected/Secure" without proper and extensive auditing processes in places, from hardware to userland tools.
    Which, AFAIK, it's not the case.

      It's still more "protected/secure" than the non-protected mode, so the name is OK.

      Really, it's OK even for bullshit cases like Oracle's "Unbreakable Linux", as the name becomes a meme of the product.
