VIA's Padlock Tru-Delete
September 16, 2004
Hot on the heels of the Padlock SDK comes Padlock Tru-Delete, a hard drive scrubbing tool optimised for use with recent VIA processors.
Tru-Delete fills up all free space on your drive, including previously deleted files with random data, courtesy of the hardware Random Number Generator found in VIA CPUs with the C5XL core and beyond. In terms of current and future Mini and Nano-ITX boards, that would be the M10000, CL10000, TC10000 and PD10000 (all C5XL core with hardware RNG) and the MII 12000, and soon the SP8000E, SP13000, MS8000E, MS12000, and eventually the N5000E, N8000E, and N10000E (all C5P core, additionally with hardware AES encryption).
Source code and executables are available for Windows 2000/XP, Linux and Windows CE over at viaarena.com. They also have a themed competition.
