I have a DVD iso image with a Ezboot mutliboot loader (and lots of other stuff) on it. I was asking myself if there is a way to encrypt the whole iso, leaving the bootability intact.
Basically what I am looking for is a program, that encrypts the image and adds a bootable decryption program 'in front' of the usual boot sector. i would like to be prompted for my password before booting the cd, but then be able to run the boot-programs as if it was not encrypted.
as for non-boot use any usual cd protection would be sufficient (entering password, then mounting the disc as another drive)

do you guys know, if there is a software like this?

No, I do not think it exists.

Maybe, just maybe you can combine a partly "plain" CD with a "partly" crypted one, with such tools like truecrypt:
or FreeOTFE:

(for PE based builds), but of course it won't work for DOS or Linux builds, and viceversa.

Related product to protect CD or USB key:

Again this is after boot, not at boot time. And it applies only to Win environment, not DOS nor Linux as jaclaz mentioned.
