Digital forensics involves the acquisition and investigation of materials that are collected from digital devices involved in digital crimes. Currently, the term ―digital forensics ― is used to cover the investigation of all devices used to store digital data .There are some technologies that have the ability of expanding, and wireless ad-hoc network technology is one of them. Due to the nature of wireless ad-hoc networks, difficulties commonly arise, and as a result, investigating such networks, create large challenges. Thus, the goals of this paper are to understand the concepts of wireless ad-hoc networks and the challenges of collecting live evidence on such networks, to highlight the research requirements, and to propose solutions to some of these challenges.

Keywords: Digital forensics, Wireless Ad-hoc networks, Digital crimes, Digital investigation.
