[debian-knoppix] Include wipe into Knoppix
I would be more then happy, if wipe could be part of Knoppix in the future.
This should not be a Problem, I think, since wipe is only a tiny package.
cw@neso:~ -> dpkg -s wipe
Status: install ok installed
Maintainer: Thomas Schoepf <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Depends: libc6 (>= 2.2.4-4)
Description: Secure file deletion
Recovery of supposedly erased data from magnetic media is easier than what
many people would like to believe. A technique called Magnetic Force
Microscopy (MFM) allows any moderately funded opponent to recover the last
two or three layers of data written to disk. Wipe repeatedly writes special
patterns to the files to be destroyed, using the fsync() call and/or the
O_SYNC bit to force disk access.
