Encrypted virtual disk

Description (last modified by klaus) (diff)
Can VirtualBox encrypt virtual disks. The code is all out there, and well understood. Linux drivers for example exist to use a pass phrase to encrypt block devices. I wonder if that could be integrated into VirtualBox so that all guests running on any host can benefit.
One use case for VirtualBox is when using a work laptop for private purposes, say reading email, playing the odd game etc. A good way to do this is to install your favourite OS in a VirtualBox, and to encrypt it in-case of loss or even worse, an audit! This way you avoid the potential problems of installing your own software on a work machine.
So, possible? Probable?
