Protecting Digital Evidence Integrity by Using Smart Cards: Revised Selected Papers
2010 (English)In: Digital Forensics and Cyber Crime: Revised Selected Papers / [ed] Ibrahim Baggili, Springer Berlin/Heidelberg, 2010, 110-119 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
RFC 3227 provides general guidelines for digital evidence collection and archiving, while the International Organization on Computer Evidence offers guidelines for best practice in the digital forensic examination. In the light of these guidelines we will analyze integrity protection mechanism provided by EnCase and FTK which is mainly based upon Message Digest Codes (MDCs). MDCs for integrity protection are not temper proof, hence they can be forged. With the proposed model for protecting digital evidence integrity by using smart cards (PIDESC) that establishes a secure platform for digitally signing the MDC (in general for a whole range of cryptographic services) in combination with Public Key Cryptography (PKC), one can show that this weakness might be overcome.
