SubjectUnswappable memory needed is user space
I'm making a crypto program (under french law).
It crypts a file and then totally erase the uncrypted by filling it with

My problem is that if the crypting process is swapped out during

in swap partition.

Is there a way to malloc a non swappable part of memory ?
