  1. Technique evades forensics investigations

    Computer scientists have developed software that hides sensitive data on hard drive, without the use of encryption, by controlling the precise disk locations containing the file's data fragments.

    The people who are behind this project says that they are using 'steganography' (art of hiding secret information in plain sight) as the basis of this new system. As using encryption is reasonably easy to detect, helping unwanted eyes to know that hard drive contains information which is considered important.
