LUKS Comments

LUKS is brilliant!

Positive Comment by harveyV
about LUKS Aug 2014

Im using LUKS on my Kali Linux distro along with NUKE option. This is fantastic. Put in the failsafe passcode and everything becomes obsolete. Insert the backup LUKS files and you recover it back. Must have for encryption.
