=================

the idea of closed-source hardware-based crypto disk drive may appeal to
some, but i've seen too many similar things fail through stupidity,
malice, etc.

one probably wouldn't have to look hard for more examples of "secure

provide the peace of mind that open-source crypto does (or maybe my
tin-foil hat is too tight).
