Anti-forensics as a concept is as old as the traditional computer forensics. Someone that commit a punishable action use any possible way to get rid of any evidence connected with the prohibited action. The traditional forensics can have a range of anti-forensics that start from a trivial level (e.g. wiping fingerprints from a gun) and to a level where our fantasy can meet the implementation of an anti-forensic idea (e.g. alteration of DNA left behind in a crime). In digital anti-forensics the same rules exists, with the difference that they are fairly new with little research and development. Although Anti-Forensics is a field under development, however, there are already categories of available tools. This paper aims to present of the some current anti-forensic approaches along with some applicable solutions.
