Nuking in Kali Linux FDE Installation
A week ago, one individuals had the thought of adding some sort of “nuke” choice to our Kali deploy. In some other words, having a boot password that could destroy, in lieu of decrypt, the results on your drive. A few Google lookups later, we found a vintage cryptsetup area by Juergen Pabel which in turn does this, adding some sort of “nuke” private data to cryptsetup, which in turn when employed, deletes just about all keyslots along with makes the results on this drive inaccessible. We ported this specific patch for a recent model of cryptsetup along with posted the item on Github.
