Probably. If you hack a few things. But as a general rule, you shouldn't be passing stuff back and forth to the client that needs to be protected from the client.

The content as a whole can easily be encrypted. Just use HTTPS. That will keep external paws off the data. The data will be decrypted on the client's machine, but protected outside that machine.
