This is a secure kernel?

"A Highly proprietary ... secure kernel."

So its proprietary and nobody has the source to review it to confirm its "security".

Mmmmm.....OK.

As a rule, anything that is a binary I don't trust.

Source code I do trust as it can be peer reviewed.

That is the best security you can get, next to running a NULL kernel. (Which is what every machine runs when it is powered off.)
