Improve security for hidden burn variables. #4299

In my managed BA, I have a password in a SecureString. I'd like a SecureStringVariables property in the managed Engine so that I never have to convert that SecureString to a managed string.

The engine should encrypt hidden variables while in memory and call SecureZeroMemory before freeing them so that they are not in memory after the process exits.

Would really want this piped through to the engine. That might be breaking.
