Windows Mobile - Secure Device Wiping (C#) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am developing application where user can remotely wipe device if device is lost. But, if the device is actually not lost (may be he has put it somewhere and can't find) and found after some time, he should be able to restore it back using encryption key. If the device is actually lost, data should not be recoverable.

    I need to provide secure wiping function in windows mobile with following details:

    1. All files on device should be encrypted with a strong key (done).
    2. User should not be able to view files in explorer.
    3. Device should not show used disk space for encrypted files.
    4. My application should be able to get (restore) the files back (by decrypting) at the same location using same key used for encryption.
