A tool to securely erase/wipe data on disks HDD and SSD with a proper sanitization process.

Project description

Usody Sanitize

Under development.

A tool to securely erase disks by performing a certificate-based validation of the wipe process.

It ensures that the data on the disk is completely and irrecoverably erased, protecting sensitive information from being recovered. The tool uses industry-standard wiping methods to securely erase the data on the disk, making it impossible to recover. The tool also generates a certificate of sanitize process that can be used to verify the authenticity of the wipe process. This tool is perfect for businesses and individuals who need to securely and permanently remove sensitive data from their disks.


This tool uses hdparm and smartmontools for the sanitize process, make sure to have them installed before running sanitize.

For Debian users, run the following command:

apt update
apt install python3-pydantic nvme-cli smartmontools xxd

Erasure tools dependencies

NVME disks

On debian we need the dependency nvme-cli.

apt update
apt install nvme-cli

nvme-cli is a valuable tool to efficiently and securely erase the data while benefiting from the speed and security features inherent in NVMe technology. This is particularly important in scenarios where data confidentiality, performance, and compliance are critical concerns.


Install the package from the official PyPi repository:

$ pip install usody_sanitize

---> 100%


Sanitize is written to make it easy to use via terminal or import and integrate with your code.

Terminal client
