FYI: IEEE 2883 "Standard for Sanitizating of Storage" is in public review

James C Hatfield

This is to inform anyone with an interest in storage sanitization that a new IEEE standard is  

in public review from Nov. 15, 2021 until Jan. 14, 2022 


IEEE 2883 "Standard for Sanitizating of Storage" is a companion document to 

ISO/IEC 27040 "Information Technology - Security Techniques - Storage Security" 


ISO/IEC 27040 (revision still in development) describes high level security techniques, guidance, and requirements. 

IEEE 2883 describes HOW to sanitize storage in ways that depend on the technology (e.g., interface and media).
