I know some people carry their usb-stick with a openvpn-exe + config

On any XP (Internet-cafe's are normally polluted with M$) they can run
their vpn client, and afterwards they can create ssh-connections (trough
the tunnel), read mail safely and so-on (As default-GW and DNS are
pushed by their own vpn-server)...

And the key and other credentials are read into memory, and maybe got
copied by the owner of the machine, or dumped to disk, or whatever...

They use to be password protected.
If you are more in control, one might use two-factor access for either
ssh or vpn...
