Now both hardware and software has it ups and downs, but from my point of view hardware is better. Your take on the hdd with full disk encryption, seaget, fde3, addionics ruby cipher, flagstone and so on. Also the via nano processor. Anyone that has a take on this? Im also not a windows fan, and i researched about linux safe deletion and so on, first you can only run ext2 not higher, if you do its possible to recover file even if you use shred, wipe and so on, they do not work on journald systems. You have from THC secure deletion package, this conatinas for files, swap and memory and more, still use ext2 not above. SO i was wondering buying a hp mini 2133 laptop then i would get a hardware encrypting processor, and buying a seaget fde3 hdd the total cost would get mo to around 450 dollers, how secure would this be? And no one could really say its encrypted either like you can with software encryption..
