Security - best way to make laptop data unrecoverable?
Posted on 2003-11-29
I'd like to put some security on my laptop. Specifically I want to detect an attempted login. After N failed attempts (or even a boot into bios), I want to wipe/overwrite a few sections of the drive where the critical data is stored. Finally, I'd like to rig some sort of physical failure as well (Ie - flash fire or similar)
In other words, if this laptop gets out of proper hands, I not only want to remove the data but I also want to doubly make sure it is unrecoverable by nuking the drive itself.
Is there anything out there like this? I've googled and not found anything like this.
