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...
