Authentication is a critical problem in our digital world. The problems with digital evidence are not new; it has been a constant issue for decades now. The US government was the first to identify that the security of electronic data could be compromised through the use of weak or unverified identities.

  • What is digital evidence? It's data that you submit to a company, e.g. documents, emails, images etc. This data can be automatically verified and authenticated at the time of submission by a third party such as a lawyer or notary.
  • Digital evidence is growing exponentially. It’s important to ensure that digital evidence meets the requirements set by the court and law enforcement agencies.

A new method of authentication has been developed. This method does not rely on the intrinsic legitimacy of a document or the authenticity of a witness but rather on the authoring and signature of its creator.

A man in court was charged with possession of cannabis and a police officer wanted to question him. The police did not have the necessary equipment to test the substance and therefore they had to use their own equipment to test the message. The text message written by the accused said "I am not a 'dope'".

In the name of justice, lawyers have carried out a variety of activities in order to prove the identity of their clients. In courtrooms, these activities include eye witnesses and witnesses as well as official documents such as birth certificates or marriage licenses. Unfortunately, most of these procedures don’t succeed because there are few ways to verify identities when relying on outside sources like eye witnesses.
