Encrypted Persistence

Eric Hansen Eric Hansen Profile: Eric Hansen


This isn’t old technology, in that persistence has been around for a good few years, but now Kali Linux is offering it in encrypted form.


Persistence in this from is basically a way for live USB-ran distros to keep data that was created/modified while running from the USB.  While I never use this feature, it is nice to have if you’re an on-the-go kind of person.  The added feature of encryption has been long over due and one of the reasons I have never used persistence to begin with.
