  title={Reliably Erasing Data from Flash-Based Solid State Drives},
  author={Michael Yung Chung Wei and Laura M. Grupp and Frederick E. Spada and Steven Swanson},
Reliably erasing data from storage media (sanitizing the media) is a critical component of secure data management. While sanitizing entire disks and individual files is well-understood for hard drives, flash-based solid state disks have a very different internal architecture, so it is unclear whether hard drive techniques will work for SSDs as well. We empirically evaluate the effectiveness of hard drive-oriented techniques and of the SSDs’ built-in sanitization commands by extracting raw data… CONTINUE READING
