What advantage do you expect go gain vs not encrypting the channel and then encrypting the entropy (with the same key) when you receive it?

If the bus snooping attacker can break the encryption he could do so with the over the wire copy too.

Is it a question of _authenticating_ the data from the device? If so-- avoiding the case where the bus attacker would replay randomness would require great care in protocol design.
