They are really trying to see if you have acted with integrity and followed good ethical guidelines in your previous work experience. This is very important if you need to get a security clearance and they don't want to waste money on people who would not pass the background screening since it is very expensive.

Maybe they probing to see if you have a working knowledge of a code of ethics (such as the IEEE Computer Society's "Software Engineering Code of Ethics and Professional Practice" ), and understand how to apply them.
