I'd like to create a panic button that destroys any chance of decrypting a volume. Will destroying the header do that? I found this script for LUKS: https://github.com/juliocesarfort/nukemyluks/blob/master/nukemyluks.sh

Can someone perhaps show me how to do it for a veracrypt and/or TC volume? Maybe a batch or powershell for windows and a bash script for linux? I'm not sure about Mac. As for Linux, I think some variation of the LUKS script would work.

If anyone can provide the exact technical details that would be good. If you can riddle out an example script, even better. Anything is much appreciated.
