    The LUKS setup should also include a process of backing up a LUKS header.

  4. David says:

    LUKS is great, but it’s missing one thing. The setup should include something I call a Fricosu key. This is a separate key which, when entered under duress in Colorado, causes the system to silently and permanently forget the real decryption key.

    Could this be used for bad purposes? Sure it could. But if you value your privacy, it might be a life saver. The only way to get around it is if the bad guys (I mean the Government) makes a forensic copy before they force you to enter your (secret) Fricosu key.
