It has to do with a certain government specification/standard for erasing data to guarantee that the data is permanently erased and cannot be recovered.

Reference:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/US_DoD_5220-22.M

That is for DOD5220.22-M instead of DoD 5220.28-STD but it is the exact same concept/idea though small variations may exist.

DoD stands for Department of Defense and I found a list (strangely I can only find it on googles cache) of all the numbers after DoD and what they mean.

http://64.233.179.104/search?q=cache:HaSzBdZidqQJ:www.fas.org/IRP/doddir/dod/index.html+5220.28-STD&hl=en&gl=us&ct=clnk&cd=1

The DoD Directives and Instructions are numbered according to the following eight major subject groups:

    * 1000 - Manpower and Personnel (Civilian, Military, and Reserve)
    * 2000 - International and Foreign Affairs
    * 3000 - Plans and Operations, Research and Development, Intelligence, and Computer Language
    * 4000 - Logistics, Natural Resources, and Environment
    * 5000 - Acquisition and Administrative Management, Organizational Charters, Security, and Public and Legislative Affairs
    * 6000 - Health
    * 7000 - Budget, Finance, Audits, and Information Control
    * 8000 - Information Management

Scroll down to the bottom and you will find

DoD 5220.28-STD or DoD 5220.28

Though the page no longer exists there or on googles cache I managed to find it on MSN's cache

hope this helps.
