Most cyber security buffs are familiar with the Gutmann secure erase algorithm - a 35-pass wiping algorithm designed to completely obliterate sensitive information stored on a magnetic medium. The rationale behind this algorithm is that simply erasing a file and overwriting it with zeros is not enough to completely destroy its contents. Since the position … Continue reading Implementing the DoD Data Sanitation Algorithm in C
