LIVE_FOR Workshop in Brussels

On March 14, 2018 the LIVE_FOR project organised the first face-to-face educational event in Brussels after conducting the webinar last week on March 07, 2018.

The workshop focused on the title of the project: Criminal Justice Access to evidence stored in the cloud. 22 participants discussed the procedure of using the European Investigation Order as a tool for collecting electronic evidence abroad in detail.

Emmanuelle Legrand, Seconded National Expert to the European Commission (DG JUST) and a French Investigating Judge, led the discussions of the participants about the impact of location of servers for issuing evidence collection by using the EIO and analysed the EIO-form together with the attendees.

Afterwards, Antonio Rodriguez, Head of Cybersecurity at the inLab.FIB-esCERT, gave a live demonstration focussing on e-mail forensics, illustrating the technical execution of an issued digital forensics measure.

The workshop was finished by a presentation of Christian Förster, Investigator at the German Bundeskriminalamt, who introduced his INTLI project, which examines the International Lawful Interception of Telecommunication and the live exchange of evidence.

During the whole day the participants had fruitful discussions and exchanged many best practices.

Output of the workshop will be summarized in a paper, which will be published in the next quarter.

Antonio Rodriguez from Politechnical University of Catalunya (UPC) provided an overview on digital forensics and collecting digital evidence online. He explained how Internet works, how data is stored, and what logs are available. He also showed how digital evidence can be secured, which acquisition methods can be used, and how the evidence can be securely transferred.

Finally, Lodewijk van Zwieten, Public prosecutor from the Netherlands, presented best practices and challenges in using the EIO for the collection of e-evidence.
