From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

"You're the best in your field—the best soldiers, tacticians, sappers, communicators, survival experts. I picked you personally because I want you to train the best commandos in the galaxy. You'll have everything you need, whatever you want, except one thing—home. This is a top-secret project. You'll not tell anyone where you're going and you'll not leave Kamino, ever. As far as your friends and family are concerned, you're already dead."
―Jango Fett recruiting the Cuy'val Dar

Cuy'val Dar was Mando'a for "Those Who No Longer Exist."

In Mandalorian culture, one would become Cuy'val Dar as a means to disappear, either to escape someone, or more commonly to not endanger those left behind. Normally, they would not take on other identities, just be themselves in another setting, where they would not be found.

This title was given to the 100 training sergeants, 75 of whom were Mandalorians, who Jango Fett recruited to run the clone commando training program. They had to disappear; they could not tell anyone they were on Kamino, and because they did not know when the army was going to be activated, they had no idea how long they would have to remain there. Those who had families (although the majority lived alone) just left them. As far as everyone else was concerned, they were dead or missing in action.

During the early part of the Yuuzhan Vong War, New Republic Intelligence officer Kubariet asked Boba Fett if he could help establish a new Cuy'val Dar to help train planetary militia populations to better fight against the Yuuzhan Vong.
