Cyber Tools On-Line Search for Evidence

Objective

The project aims to develop and demonstrate a methodology and software tools to enable verifiable evidence of disputed electronic transactions to be captured, stored, analysed, preserved, integrated, and presented. This evidence, proving unambiguously what has occurred, can then be used in various procedures, including mediation, Alternative Dispute Resolution, company disciplinary proceedings, and civil and criminal courts.

The intention of this project is to make it possible, while respecting security and privacy requirements, to produce evidence of disputed electronic transactions which is comprehensible to those called upon to make judgements about the transactions concerned, and is sufficiently reliable and well authenticated to be accepted as proof of an electronic event which has happened.

The project will produce:
- a common data format for electronic evidence;
- a methodology for assembling evidence in that format;
- a methodology for handling such evidence in a provably tamper-proof fashion;
- a methodology for the organisation, integration and presentation of evidence;
- a prototype set of tools as a demonstrator of the methodologies in a real environment.
Security and privacy requirements will be integrated within the methodologies developed.
