About this book

This book is the first to develop a systematized approach for the comparison and evaluation of secure deletion solutions. The book focuses on novel secure deletion solutions targeting specific real-world environments where secure deletion is problematic: mobile storage and remote storage. The author surveys related work, organizes existing solutions in terms of their interfaces, presents a taxonomy of adversaries differing in their capabilities, and then builds a system and adversarial model based on the survey of related work.

The book is useful for both academics, researchers and graduate students, and for practitioners who may integrate its results into deployed systems.

Reviews

“In this book, the author discusses all of this, as well as some of the ways to ensure secure deletion … . The material is generally well presented and interesting … . This book could well be used as supplemental material for an undergraduate course in computer security or in operating systems, as the author mentions implementations in Linux for several ideas presented.” (Computing Reviews, May, 2017)


“The author has written the definitive reference on the topic ... a formalized and systematized approach to the secure deletion of data. This is not the book for those looking for a list of products for file or drive sanitization. This is actually the book that the developers of such software and hardware solutions should be using to design their systems, and to ensure their products can indeed perform as described. ... The book is a fascinating read for anyone who wants to understand the significant challenges in deleted data from various forms of media.” (Ben Rothke, CISSP CISM)
