Not if you flash the bios, or just put it in developer mode (at least that was true of the older chromeboxes)
SSL to their servers prevents tampering in-route. Now they could have used their own wire protocol to ensure the data wasn't altered on the way, but why reinvent the wheel?

Serial ports have been gatewayed to telnet for years.
There's no reason why you can't use tramp over serial. I never have to leave emacs, it'll even transparently bounce thru a 'beachhead' system to get to systems "on the other side".
