    Host Windows 7 64 is not encrypted.
    Virtualbox VM running Windows 7 32 with Truecrypt full disk encryption.
    What data is leaked to the OS in this example?
    For instance swap information.
    Is the only concern in this configuration the possible presence of a key logger in use on the host OS?

    That's not a secure setup, because VirtualBox and Windows cache stuff.

    It's far better to use whole-disk encryption on the host (or both).

    I know that it is not completely secure.
    I was after some specific type information in a search for knowledge.
    Projects like this are fun.
    I like to understand the why of it all not just the how.
    I thought perhaps my question would help lead me in the proper research direction.
