Here are some encrypted (?) fonts that may or may not be secure. You make up your own mind.

They work and install right into puppy. If you have Pfontview by Thunor you can view them even though they are not TTF but OTF. You will need to tweak the MIME-type for this to work.
Code:
(cd ~/Choices/MIME-types; ln -sf application_x-font-ttf application_x-font-otf)


To install, unzip the file and change in to the ZXX directory and copy all the fonts to /usr/share/fonts/default/TTF with rox or in terminal. Then in the installed directoryrun
Code:
mkfontscale
mkfontdir


As far as I can tell they are free to use and redistribute.
the supplied read me wrote:
ZXX ver.1.0

The name ZXX comes from the Library of Congress' Alpha-3 ISO 639-2 -- codes for the representation of names of languages. ZXX is used to declare No Linguistic Content; Not Applicable.

Hey Mick, thanks for this.
Putting aside the "secure" aspect, they're just nice, crazy fonts, especially 'ZXX false' - I love it!
BTW, I wonder if this font:

would also do the job..?

Greetings!

those fonts may cause problems for Optical Character Recognition (OCR) , but otherwise do not provide security benefit.
