Does this clear the memory associated with a given variable zeroed? Is
there an easy way to make sure it is?
I'm designing some software that does cryptography, and I would like to
ensure that decrypted private keys are lying around in memory in a
decrypted state for as little time as possible.
The best we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they
be properly armed. -- Alexander Hamilton
