I saw a definition concerning linux boot access:"Boot access is root access". This makes the fact that if someone has physical access to the linux server, he can get root access and copy protected files.

Moreover, if a linux application server has to be packaged and installed "Physically" in companies this will give them access to the files and they can copy them illegally.

I heard of LIDS (Linux Intrusion Detection System) but I couldn’t understand the boot access security.
My question:
Is there a boot level security that enables the fact of packaging server applications and install them in companies without the risk of the code being stolen (especially if it’s in a scripting language php, asp)
