Re: file shredding tools

I have always thought that Linux software raid 1 was pretty 
straightforward.  Would you expect tools like shred and srm to work as 
well on sw raid 1 as on a raw disk? 

Not that I trust the disk itself to flush when asked to and to not 
transparently remap sectors...but maybe that reduces to a disk disposal 

A regulatory question: What if one ran high quality encryption on top of 
the raided disks or rebalancing LVM devices.  It seems that should make 
the regulations happy.  Would that work?
