Abstract:

Anti-Forensics is the art and practice of obscuring data storage, transmission, and execution in such a way that it remains hidden from even a professional, dedicated examiner. Pikewerks has identified a number of additional anti-forensic research areas that would significantly enhance the confidentiality and integrity of executable code, data, and cryptographic materials. This includes novel out-of-band storage and transmission techniques that will dramatically increase the level of effort required to fully identify, understand, and reverse-engineer.
