UNESCO - The Memory of the World in the Digital Age: Digitization and Preservation Conference
Vancouver BC, Canada, September 28



Friday 28 September 2012        Session E

Theme: Digital Objects As Forensic Evidence
The session will show the large scope of associations that can be expressed by digital data and documents as well as their vulnerabilities and threats, and the difficulty of demonstrating a validated and well‐documented chain of evidence that aligns with standards by the legal system when such data and document reside on the Internet.  It will then show a model for evaluating what succeeds and what fails in a system, proposing continuous layers – strata‐ of expertise and qualification for electronic and digital evidence; a methodology for identifying and isolating traces of User‐Cloud interaction on  both smartphones and laptops; and the memory analysis methodology required to extract file handles in use by each process.

Theme: Trusting Data and Documents Online
Looking at the pervasive use of mobile technology and online storage, this session will show how critical electronic documents are often found in a phone web browsing history in the form of received emails, sites visited, attempted Internet searches and etc.; it will look at new forensic frameworks for assessing them; and will describe monitoring tools capable of establishing the performance reliability and security of service providers.
