But at least from what I understand from their home page, it wouldn't
solve the VNC problem I described, right?

At UCB I think I'm pretty safe.  They are highly paranoid about
security.  For instance, they won't let you run any software from
a USB key, unlike the public terminals at UCD.

I've been doing this for years, and never had a problem.  I should
mention, though, that in actuality I run VNC on one of our instructional
machines. not my office machine, as a precaution.
