Using Kicksecure XFCE VM as offline Cold Storage

Hello, dear users and developers!

I have a question. Is it possible/wise/endorsed-by-developers to use Kicksecure XFCE OS in VirtualBox as completely offline virtual machine for cold storage? If the answer is “yes”, then how to properly configure both virtual machine and Kicksecure settings for that purpose?

Is it enough to just disable network in VirtualBox settings for Kicksecure?
Or should I also disable such things as System Check and sdwdate inside Kicksecure somehow since there is no internet connection anyway? Which time should I set in such case to be secure?

Thank you very much for your work on Whonix, and for your answer in advance too! :slight_smile:
