I am pretty new here compared to most of you, and probably not half as knowledgeable, but still I’m trying to help out best I can.
For the past two weeks or so I have been messing around with Whonix 14 trying to implement different methods of RAM erasure that I have been able to locate.
I found a guideline on Tails website in their design subject about how they go about it on a page titled “Memory Erasure”. I’m still working on trying to implement that in Whonix, but I have heard of some accomplishing this task on Debian so I feel it could be possible. If I am wrong about that I would love to know why cause I have been working quite hard at implementing it.
Aside from that I have also tried tools like sdmem which was quite easy to use as a solution on shutdown, but I have heard it to not be as effective as one would want. I am also checking out memtest86 as a possible solution, but still I fear that may suffer the same problems.
Has anyone else been working on this feature mostly for the live system that could point me in the right direction, or simply tell me if I am wasting my time. I just think this would be a wonderful feature to be available on Whonix. An amnesiac system with the added security provided by isolation Could really change things. A lot I have spoken with about this idea are quite excited by it so I have been working hard to make it possible, I just don’t know if it is indeed possible or not.
