Ctrl+Alt+Backspace and Alt+SysRq+K perform distinctly different operation: they kill everything in this console and start new session. Ctrl+Alt+Backspace switches to separate context where only "guaranteed secure" set of programs work (and can be used for forensic purposes without immediately killing everything or to just securely lock/unlock workstation's screen).
