Relevant Rulings
Taken from the Aequitas FAQ
Are the cards revealed when they’re put into the KO area?
Yes. They will be face up in the KO area. Either player can look at them. (Don’t grab your opponent’s cards without permission though.)
Source: Wave 4 FAQ
If my opponent has Secret Actions in their hand, scrap pile, or even in their KO area (say because of Daring Escape), do those count?
No. Decipher counts only the Secret Actions in your opponent’s played area.
Source: Wave 4 FAQ
Does an Autobot Battle Master in upgrade mode on a character still count as an Autobot on the battlefield when putting cards on your KO area for Daring Escape?
No. Daring Escape only counts Autobot characters.
Source: Rules Roundup 2019-11-22
Does Daring Escape continually check the whole turn or does it only check when the card is played?
It only checks one time when the card is played, not the whole turn.
Source: Rules Roundup 2019-11-08
If I have Secret Actions in my hand, scrap pile, under a character, or even in my KO area (say because of Daring Escape), do those count?
No. Pounce counts only the Secret Actions in your played area.

Notes from [Name Not Given]:
"Really fun deck. You are not really trying to win with Daring Escape... it's just one of a number of mechanisms to thin out the deck for Cosmos. The other is Perceptor, who pumps himself up while he does it. Spymaster's Ruse/Heroic Resolve are there to keep people alive and keep some more cards out of the deck."
