LIBrary for SECure ReMoval
a set of replacements for these standard C functions which cause data removing from files.

Libsecrm (LIBrary for SECure ReMoval of files) is a library which ensures secure data deleting by intercepting calls to some C library functions and replacing them by its own substitutes. The data that would be deleted from a file is first securely wiped, then the original functions are called. Libsecrm also takes care of memory security - some of the memory allocation functions are intercepted, and the allocated memory is wiped before passing it to the calling program.
