Secudel (including sources) released!
Mood:  chillin'
Topic: My works
Secudel, a little kmd i coded which should satisfy your paranoia about security and privacy. It performs secure deletion of files using DOD (Department of Defense) 5220.22-M Standard. It gets installed as boot driver, so you will not see a gui or anything. It just takeover the OS deletefile process whenever you delete a file.


!!!WARNING!!! : there's no way (except maybe some weird forensic analysis with hardware tools, but i doubt about it too) to recover deleted files when secudel driver is installed, even with Norton Unerase, EasyRecover or anything else.

Usage :

unzip the package wherever you want, and install the driver with

sdinst.exe numberofoverwriterounds

numberofoverwriterounds is the number of overwrite passes applied when a file is deleted. A value of 2 or 3 is secure enough. Higher values may result in slowness.

The driver will run immediately without reboot.
To uninstall, use sdinst -U, then reboot.

Full sources are included, if you wanna peek at it..... you need MSVC + DDK to compile it, of course.
