Project update 3 of 25
In this update, we present the LUKS Header Shredder — an advanced self-destruct trigger that wipes your full-disk encryption (FDE) master private keys in about 5.2 seconds.
We’ve recieved a lot of questions about the BusKill self-destruct trigger. First, let’s clear-up some confusion:
The LUKS Header Shredder trigger for BusKill permanently and irrevocably destroys the ability to decrypt the contents of your LUKS volume. The procedure [a] locks the screen, [b] unmounts the LUKS volumes, [c] wipes the encryption keys from RAM, [d] wipes the encryption keys from disk, [e] wipes the rest of the FDE header metadata, and [f] does a hard-shutdown.
This whole process completes in just a matter of seconds and renders everything on the LUKS volume indistinguishable from random data. (Our guide provides a forensic evaluation that backs up up this claim.)
To view the source code and get instructions on how to configure your computer to self-destruct when your BusKill cable’s connection is severed, see our LUKS Header Shredder guide, which is hot off the presses!
We still have some Early-Bird discounts available! Get your BusKill cable for $10 off while they last!
