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

cryptsetup, which in turn when employed, deletes just about all

ported this specific patch for a recent model of cryptsetup along
with posted the item on Github.
