creating penetration testing distribution by the success of
backtrack, has released Kali Linux 1.0.6. The previous version of
Kali has already been released by them and the response of infosec

Nuking in Kali Linux
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.
