whats the recommended answer to give in such situation where an encrypted
volume is clearly visible since its LUKS but you are unable to open it when
asked by authorities since you nuked all key slots?If you cant open the
volume and If you are not believed,then any answer you will give most
likely will not be believable and hence "the password was XXX but it now
doesnt work because i nuked it" is just as believable as "i dont remember
the password" or "i dont know the password,i am just carrying the laptop
for a friend".
