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.


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.

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.
