object reuse
1.  Reassignment and re-use of a storage medium containing one or more objects after ensuring no residual data remains on the storage medium. [INFOSEC-99]   2.    Reuse of a storage medium for a different object [CESG].  Note: [1] A vulnerability may exist if the medium contains residual data from a previous object.   [2] This is now the accepted term, despite the fact that it is the storage medium, not the object, that is reused.  See also: Purge.  3.  The reassignment to some subject of a medium (e.g., page frame, disk sector, magnetic tape) that contained one or more objects. To be securely reassigned, such media must contain no residual data from the previously contained object(s) [TCSEC].
