Anti-Forensics Projects

Privacy and anonymity related security research does not always make headlines and many projects go entirely unnoticed. This Projects page is dedicated to those researchers and the work they do.

Here you will find listings of various anti-forensics projects, applications, code, ideas, discussions and more existing across the public interwebs.

To submit a project please email me from the contact page.

[Discussion] OPSEC Discussion – Operational Security for Hackers Google discussion group maintained by the grugq.

[Blog] Hacker OPSEC – the grugq continues his hacker OPSEC work, research, and articles with his blog on the subject. the grugq is an authoritative source on anti-forensics and related topics, among other research.

[Code] panic_bcast by qnrq – panic_bcast is a network protocol panic button operating decentralized through UDP broadcasts and HTTP. It’s intended to act a panic button in a sensitive network making it harder to perform cold boot attacks. A serious freedom fighter will run something like this on all nodes in the computerized network.

[Discussion] Reddit /r/antiforensics – antiforensics subreddit on

[Code] intx80′s anti-forensics – various anti-forensics scripts for causing digital recovery mayhem.

[Code] Eraser – Eraser is an advanced security tool (and useful anti-forensics project) for Windows which allows you to completely remove sensitive data from your hard drive by overwriting it several times with carefully selected patterns.

[Code] P.O.R.T.A.L. – Personal Onion Router to Assure Liberty. Using a router to ensure all traffic is Tor tunneled – by the grugq. This is an amazingly great project and if you start from scratch you’ll get some hardware hacking experience in as well, as the two recommended routers can receive a RAM upgrade.
