Anti-computer Forensics - Definition

Definition

Anti-forensics has only recently been recognized as a legitimate field of study. Within this field of study, numerous definitions of anti-forensics abound. One of the more widely known and accepted definitions comes from Dr. Marc Rogers of Purdue University. Dr. Rogers uses a more traditional “crime scene” approach when defining anti-forensics. “Attempts to negatively affect the existence, amount and/or quality of evidence from a crime scene, or make the analysis and examination of evidence difficult or impossible to conduct.”

A more abbreviated definition is given by Scott Berinato in his article entitled, The Rise of Anti-Forensics. “Anti-forensics is more than technology. It is an approach to criminal hacking that can be summed up like this: Make it hard for them to find you and impossible for them to prove they found you.” Neither author takes into account using anti-forensics methods to ensure the privacy of one's personal data.

Famous quotes containing the word definition:

    The very definition of the real becomes: that of which it is possible to give an equivalent reproduction.... The real is not only what can be reproduced, but that which is always already reproduced. The hyperreal.
    Jean Baudrillard (b. 1929)

    Scientific method is the way to truth, but it affords, even in
    principle, no unique definition of truth. Any so-called pragmatic
    definition of truth is doomed to failure equally.
    Willard Van Orman Quine (b. 1908)

    One definition of man is “an intelligence served by organs.”
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
