Subject: how can I protect my kernel image from being disclosed?

Dear Gurus:

I've surveyed for secure boot for days and most of them are either
grub-md5-crypt or u-boot and TPM support.
There is a thread about using grub to decrypt kernel image, but the
discussion didn't go to anywhere.

So, I'd like to know if there is any bootloader capable of decrypting
an encrypted kernel image via a secret key supplied, without the
constraint of TPM?

Thanks in advance.
